WASHINGTON (AP) — Don’t try to fly with your fireworks this Fourth of July.

That’s what the Transportation Security Administration is trying to remind travelers ahead of the summer holiday.

The TSA says fireworks and sparklers are prohibited at all times in both checked and carry-on bags. That includes things like bottle rockets, poppers, smoke fireworks and Roman candles.

Travelers who are unsure whether an item is allowed on an airplane can find more information on the TSA’s website.
