LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock County Commissioner's Court has decided not to restrict the sale or use of fireworks in the unincorporated parts of Lubbock County this season, although fireworks are still prohibited within city limits.

Although they do remind residents that Lubbock County has a burn ban in place and all outdoor burning is restricted in compliance with the TCEQ Burn Rules for Texas.

Fireworks wholesalers and vendors have been asked to voluntarily comply with a ban on "missiles with fins and rockets."

Lubbock County Emergency Management released this statement on Monday:
