Dozens of people will be paying big fines because of the way they chose to celebrate the Fourth of July.Firefighters and police officers teamed up to catch people setting off illegal fireworks last night and they wrote 55 tickets.

That number's actually down from last year, but firefighters say they think there will be more as people light off the fireworks they didn't set off last night.

The citations come with a $1,000.
