The fire danger around the North State remains high but as we get closer to the Fourth of July, more and more people will be buying and lighting off fireworks.
Fireworks went on sale Tuesday and some organizations say they depend greatly on the money raised from their fireworks fundraisers. Organizations like the Hamilton City Sports Boosters. Robert Young ... the president of the Hamilton City Sports Boosters says they have seen a slight dip in the money raised because of the high fire danger. The money generated from the sale is used to buy equipment for all the athletic teams at Hamilton City High School.
Young says, "This is about 50-percent of what we raise for our annual budget for the year. So it's a pretty good size one for us. We'll get anywhere from $30-35,000 in total sales, that's gross sales."
Young says they do remind all of their customers to be responsible and cautious when celebrating the Fourth of July. Cal Fire is also reminding people that they along with local fire agencies will be enforcing fireworks regulations throughout the North State. The only areas where fireworks are legal to possess and light-off are within the city limits of Gridley and Oroville and in Tehama and Glenn counties.
Cal Fire has issued statements saying they are very concerned about the possibility of unwanted fires and the use of illegal fireworks will not be tolerated. Anyone who causes a fire while using fireworks could be charged with a felony.
