Calaveras County (CBS13) – Just a few weeks after July 4, Calaveras County banned the use of fireworks for five months due to increasingly dry conditions as the peak of the summer and fire season approaches.
According to District 5 Supervisor Benjamin Stopper, the ban will come into force soon and all fireworks will be banned from use and sale within the county’s limits.
Nevertheless, Stopper confirmed that the ban would not affect the large fireworks show in the county.
The Calaveras County Supervisory Board unanimously decides on a ban, which expires in November.
The county’s decision is due to California’s wildfire season going well and the state being devastated by drought. Several fires continue to occur in and around the Greater Sacramento area.
Stopper said the numerous fires he had already experienced were important factors in the county’s decision.
