Plan to light fireworks on July 4? Here’s how to do it safely, legally

Thousands gathered on the grass at Vic Mathias shores last Fourth of July.  Public displays are still your safest bet to enjoying fireworks.

Ready to celebrate our nation’s birthday on Monday? Before you grab a box of sparklers or firecrackers, know how to safely use them.

Travis, Williamson, Hays, Caldwell and Bastrop counties all have enacted burn bans because of drought conditions brought on by a hotter than normal May and June and a dryer than normal year.

Fireworks technically are not covered by burn bans, but in Travis County, the fire marshal and the fireworks retailers have agreed to not sell two types of fireworks: stick rockets and missiles with fins or rudders. Williamson County also reached similar deals.

Bastrop and Hays counties have prohibited the sale of those two types of fireworks.
