Fireworks go on salePosted: Updated:
Fireworks stands legally open Monday across the state, but before you buy them, make sure you know the rules and restrictions.
A good rule of thumb: if they are sold where you are, you can use them.
Fireworks are NOT allowed in the cities of Kennewick, Pasco, Franklin County, or Prosser. Residents in Richland, West Richland Benton City and unincorporated Benton County CAN have fireworks, but with some restrictions.
As for Yakima, Sgt. Mike Russell says, "If you're not an enrolled member of the Yakima Nation you cannot legally go anywhere in Yakima County to light off fireworks except for a few communities that make it legal on the Fourth of July." Enrolled members may only light fireworks on tribal land and cities across the county have their own restrictions. Fireworks stands are highly regulated as well.
