Fireworks Sales Up for Richland Stand

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.--  Some people are planning to watch fireworks shows at parks, while many others are choosing to light off their own.  Fireworks vendors say they're popping off the shelves because so many people are buying them.

Pastor Ramirez and his church group are selling fireworks at a TNT stand on George Washington Way in Richland. The group says they were worried about sales at first, but they've recently sparked.  He explains, "I was a little hesitant at first because it was a little bit slow, but last night and tonight, I was very optimistic that a lot of people aren't going to go out of town.  They'd rather spend their money here."

Remember, fireworks are illegal in many places.  A good rule is where you can buy them, you can light them off.
