WICHITA, Kan. — Numerous people have been treated at Wichita hospitals for fireworks-related injuries.

At Via Christi, 17 patients have been treated at their regional burn center. Only one had to be admitted, and is currently listed in serious condition.

A Via Christi spokesperson said patients are still coming in because people are still shooting fireworks. Fireworks were legal to shoot in city limits until midnight Sunday morning.
