People still using illegal fireworks

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—Each local area has their own set of rules when it comes to fireworks, but they all have one in common.

Fireworks that jump around or shoot into the air are illegal, but Benton County firefighters say people are still shooting them off.  They say one of the main reasons they are banned is because they can easily start fires.

A few grass fires have already been sparked, fortunately, they were put out before they could spread.
