Legal Fireworks Burn $1 Million Elk Grove Home

A house fire on Sheldon Park Way may have been caused by "safe and sane" fireworks.

Fire crews were called to the seven-bedroom, four-bathroom around 1 a.m. and battled flames until around 6 a.m.

An investigation found that improperly disposed of legal fireworks likely caused the initial sparks.

The fireworks were left in a bucket next to a trash can on the side of the $1.2 million residence.

At least one of them was not all the way put out and so it reignited. 

Legal fireworks are supposed to be disposed of in a bucket full of water to ensure they are completely out. 

Officials are calling the inside of the home a total loss.
