Departments Could Ban Personal and Commercial Fireworks Because of Dry Conditions
According to WILX-TV 10, several communities in Mid-Michigan have banned outdoor fires because of dry conditions and fireworks could be next. Depending on the weather, departments could ban personal as well as commercial fireworks.
The Department of Natural Resources has the Lansing area at "very high" for fire risk, so firefighters say at this point its going to take more than a passing shower for conditions to turn around.
Right now businesses in charge of putting on the shows say they're also taking it day by day. Safety is the number one concern, if you don't have safety you don't have anything.
The State Fire Marshall is also reviewing conditions and is considering bans on a statewide level.
