County Commissioners Approves Certain Fireworks for Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is just more than three weeks away, but Lubbock County Commissioners are already helping citizens pick out their fireworks.

On Monday, the court approved the ban of Bottle Rockets, missiles with sticks, and rockets with fins. Assistant District Criminal Attorney, John Grace says those were banned because of fire dangers.

"These are the type of fireworks that actually carry something flammable up into the sky and drop where it can start a wildfire," said Grace.

Grace says the fireworks that stay on the ground and higher up aerial fireworks are not affected. He says people need to be careful when shooting fireworks near cotton fields because fires could cause high dollar damage.
