NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Authorities made a major fireworks bust just weeks before Independence Day.

Four people were arrested after FDNY fire marshals with the New York City Fireworks Task Force found a van full of illegal fireworks worth more than $8,000.

Authorities said they were able to stop them before they could be sold or used in New York City.

Officials did not say where the van was found.
