PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Add red, white and blue to that black and gold, Pittsburgh. It’s time to celebrate Independence Day and there are plenty of celebrations going on in Western Pennsylvania.

Two of the area’s largest celebrations, Pittsburgh and Canonsburg, are back together along with many other places in the region. Once again this year, Pittsburgh will be sending its fireworks task force to address complaints.

Authorities are also warning people about the fire risks posed by fireworks. If you get burned, doctors recommend rinsing immediately with cold water and not using ice.
