Law enforcement officers will be patrolling the community watching for illegal use of fireworks during this year’s July 4 holiday and throughout the entire month of July.
Franklin County Fire Marshal Scott Martin said only “safe and sane” fireworks can be used by residents and sold at fireworks stands.
“We plan to be extra vigilant this summer because of the dry and hot conditions and potential for fires,” he said.
