Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Friday, June 28 was the first day "safe and sane fireworks" were being sold in Las Vegas.

But, before any of the 146 approved booths can sell anything, they have to be inspected by fire inspectors.

Action News spoke to an inspector on Friday, at the booth in the Smith's parking lot on Maryland Parkway near Silverado Ranch Boulevard.

She had a long list of what needs to be in place.

"Making sure the booth is up to code as far as signage, sturdiness, making sure the product in the booth is the correct safe and sane products that we allow, making sure that their extinguishers are there, ready and available in case anything happens," explained Amanda Wildermuth.

Consumers can buy these fireworks through 11:59 p.m. on July 4.

After that, it'll be illegal.
