What's the 4th of July without the fireworks? With little rain across the Valley lately, it is important to remember, if you light them, you have to take precautions.
It only takes a spark to start a fire and with the Valley's drought condition, the fire danger is at high risk. Fireworks will be the top seller this weekend due to the Independence Day celebrations which can provide family entertainment, but make sure to follow safety measures. Remember that they are banned within the city limits, use extreme caution on lighting the fireworks, under supervision of an adult and have something to extinguish a fire.
