AS 2.0: Fading to white

Hello community,

I am working in a .fla movie for a client trying to imitate some fireworks being shot from the ground. I am creating the fireworks, i am able to tint the particles to white, but I can not **fade **the particles to white.

If somebody have a snipped of code that I can see, or show me the light in this manner, I will be highly grateful.
