We now have a ban on fire burning in Pierce County. Can someone tell me why fireworks are still allowed? They cause fires every year, especially in close neighborhoods like ours.
While our neighbors are enjoying setting off the fireworks, particularly those purchased from the Indian reservations, the rest of us are keeping watch that nothing begins to burn.
With all the information in the newspapers and on television about what a dangerous year this will be, with record heat and dry land, it seems obvious that an extra step of care is warranted.
