Sale of fireworks picking up today

July 3, 2009 10:43:03 AM PDT
Fireworks are not illegal in Harris County this holiday weekend. But there are a couple of limitations on what you can buy. The only kinds of fireworks banned are stick and fin rocket aerials. Other fireworks are legal.

So far, sales are slower than normal, but picking up today. One issue is a burn ban, which is in effect because we had one of the driest Junes on record.

Tonight on Eyewitness News at 4pm and 6pm, we'll talk to the fire marshal's office and fireworks sellers who can give you insight on the best way to enjoy the 4th.
