If Using Fireworks, Use Caution

With the Fourth of July approaching, fire officials are reminding people to be very careful if they choose to use fireworks.  Hood River Fire Chief Leonard Damian points out fire danger is high as we enter into July, with springtime precipitation helping grow flammable fuels.  Damian points out those who use fireworks should do so on concrete or asphalt and away from flammable fuels like grass, and have water available to extinguish any potential sparks.  Keep in mind state laws.  In Oregon fireworks are limited to items that fly no more than 12 inches off the ground and six feet through the air.
