Every year we’re reminded of the danger of fireworks. But they are supposed to be a fun part of the Independence Day experience.
The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office is warning people about the law. You can’t explode firecrackers within 25 yards of a public road, church or school house, or within a residential subdivision. Deputies say accidents usually happen when children are unsupervised.
Shooting off fireworks within the city limits is illegal. They’ll have extra patrols on duty to handle complaints. A citation can cost you 226 dollars.
