Well this is some great news just in time for the Fourth of July! Maine is ranked as one of the safest states in the country for Independence Day, according to a newly published study by asecurelife.com.


The website looked at statistics for wildfires and impaired driving, which are two of the biggest risk factors for the holiday. Maine came in as the 8th safest state...not too shabby! Delaware came in as the safest, while Oklahoma ranked the most dangerous.

Rhode Island was the only other New England state to make the top ten safest.
