PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This will be a weekend filled with fireworks, but new research shows injuries related to fireworks are increasing. It’s unclear what’s causing the recent uptick in firework injuries, but doctors say it’s an alarming trend.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is reminding Americans to play it safe this Independence Day.

Its new report shows fireworks-related injuries are up 25% over the past 15 years.

Last year, there were at least nine deaths and an estimated 11,500 emergency room visits.

“The overall trend is still high, and we want to make sure that people understand that fireworks are explosives,” Alex Hoehn-Saric, chair of the CPSC, said. “They are dangerous.”

It’s not just fireworks that can cause injuries, sparklers can be just as dangerous.

“Sparklers burn at 2,000 degrees,” Hoehn-Saric said, “so it’s like having a blowtorch in your hand.”

Most fireworks injuries are burns, mainly to younger people.

“Fourth of July is one of the biggest, busiest times of the year for us here, especially with trauma primarily because of firework-related injuries,” said Dr. Nadia Haqqie, a doctor at Wills Eye Hospital.

Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia is gearing up for a busy weekend, with eye injuries being another potential danger linked to July 4 festivities.

“There are so many ways to get injured, there are so many parts of the eye that can be injured,” Haqqie said, “and unfortunately, a lot of damage can be permanent and can result in blindness.”

Experts say attending a professional display is the safer way to celebrate.

If you do plan to use fireworks at home, remember the acronym “wow” — water, one at a time and walk away once it’s lit.

One review on backyard fireworks showed about 31% were defective, which increases the risk for injury.

Doctors say it’s critically important to keep children away from them.

This new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries drama will take you on a road trip across the United States as two strangers connect with one another. However, the roads depicted in the plot were actually filmed in British Columbia, Canada.

An Instagram post by Patricia Macapagal, a student at the Television and Video Production program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and Director of Photography, shows quite a few behind-the-scenes shots filmed in Squamish, British Columbia.

Macapagal also shared additional behind-the-scenes moments in these highlights from their Instagram Stories.

British Columbia is no stranger to the Hallmark scene, with its diverse locations and beautiful scenery. With everything seemingly so close together, crews can film a scene at the beach in the morning and go skiing in the mountains in the afternoon, making it easier to film a diversity of views in a short period of time.

Meet the Cast

The official Crown Media synopsis reads: “Madeline (Robinson Peete) is an aging Hollywood actress who has no meaningful relationships. After a string of bad luck, Madeline hires her assistant’s friend Sarah (Bryant) to drive her from Los Angeles to New York City for an urgent medical appointment. The road trip has a rocky start, as Madeline and Sarah clash due to their different lifestyles and personalities. When their car breaks down and they’re stuck in a charming small town, the pair starts to find some common ground. As they get to know one another, they divulge personal hardships and each provides the support and unconditional friendship needed to help them through it, teaching the women that they can’t run from their past to create the future they want.”
