CLARK CO., Wash. – Clark County, Washington, has banned the sale and use of fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county due to the high fire danger.

Authorities announced that the ban begins on Tuesday, June 29, and ends at midnight on July 4, just when the use of fireworks would normally end.

“We recognize that this decision will cause some difficulties for some residents’ celebration plans, as well as businesses and nonprofits that sell fireworks,” said County Council President Eileen Quiring O’Brien. “We feel empathy for all those affected, but we must follow county laws.”

Vancouver already has a fireworks ban within its city limits.

Portland Fire & Rescue also announced a ban on fireworks despite the events of July 4.
