Another day, a couple more cities issuing fireworks bans.
Springville and Tremonton have joined the list of cities choosing to ban fireworks in certain part of the city.
In Springville, fireworks are banned in the area of the 400 West railroad tracks and following the tracks south along US 89. The city also closed an area near Clyde Park. They say on July 4th alone they say eight firework related fires.
The closures are in addition to the east bench closures.
In Tremonton the discharge of any fireworks is prohibited anywhere north of the Highline Canal within Tremonton city limits. As well as any areas west of 2300 West and east of I-84. Additional restrictions include all land within 100 feet of the “Sensitive Area Zoning District”, generally known as the Malad River Bottoms area.
The city of Bountiful has decided to dedicate a parking lot for families to shoot off fireworks. Signs that say “Fireworks prohibited in the park” have been added at Lewis Park Also, police say, due to the traffic on Davis Blvd. and the hazard posed by fireworks combined with spectators, no fireworks are allowed on Davis Blvd.
Fireworks are illegal to discharge in all part of the state until July 21st.
