BEAVER COUNTY (KDKA) – The state Attorney General’s office has filed a civil action suit against an illegal fireworks company in Aliquippa.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane says A-Rocket Fireworks has been operating without a legal permit – and was issuing its own illegal permits.

Fireworks companies are required by law to obtain permits from the municipality in which they intend to display the fireworks.

Undercover purchases were made my agents as part of a state-wide sweep.

Four fireworks companies were also sued by the AG’s office, but settled. They will pay a total of $22,000 in fines and investigation costs.

A-Rocket Fireworks is the only one that did not settle. It released a statement to KDKA over the phone.

“We assure our customers everything is done legally,” said the owner’s son.
