Brief Answer:
Possible but treatment is necessary.

Detailed Answer:

I have read your question and understand your concerns.
Common Cold and fever might be possible as a reaction to the smoke of fire crackers but it might be possible that a super added bacterial infection has caused fever.

So, my advice to you is -

1. Kindly go for following reports after consulting your family doctor.
- sputum routine and culture
(if any further reports are necessary your doctor will tell during your clinical examination)
Don't worry your common Cold will subside early after starting medicines.

2. Until you take medical therapy you can try at home following remedies -

Steam inhalation 3-4 times a day, 10 Minutes each.
Warm water gargles with salt 3 times a day is excellent remedy.
Drink hot beverages, avoid cold beverages, curd until the cold subcide.

3.Do might need an antibiotic course along with medicine for cold and fever which I can't prescribe you online. Your doctor will prescribe it to you.

So, just you need a consultation from your family doctor. After my advice it will be easier for you to understand.
Thank you.
I hope I have given you satisfactory answer. If you have any questions you are always welcome.
Have a nice day.
