July 4th Fireworks Ban - Chelan County
Chelan County Fire Marshal: Please respect fireworks ban this July 4th
Temperatures are heating up, drying out wildfire fuels
The Chelan County fire marshal reminds the public that fireworks are banned throughout the county.
The use of personal fireworks is not allowed in any of the unincorporated areas of Chelan County, as well as the cities of Cashmere, Wenatchee and Leavenworth and on federal lands.
“We are asking people to respect these fireworks bans and give our local firefighters a break this July 4th holiday,” Fire Marshal Stephen Rinaldi said. “Now is not the time to be complacent. Temperatures are heating up out there, drying out grasses and other fuels that have grown tall over an unusually cool, wet spring.”
