Beijing's "fireworks index" reached its highest level on Sunday, one of the biggest nights for fireworks on the Chinese lunar calendar.

Lantern Festival marks the end of the 16-day holiday in which fireworks can be set off in the capital.

The Beijing Meteorological Bureau reported on its micro blog at 6 pm that the index was level 3, which means residents are advised to refrain from the traditional firework celebrations.
