As the result of a cool, wet spring, fireworks restrictions were not necessary for people’s 4th of July celebrations. Northern Utah and Southern Idaho haven’t really seen any moisture since then which has caused a lot of areas to dry up and pose real wildfire dangers. Legal fireworks are allowed three days before Utah’s July 24th state holiday and three days after. Because of the hot and dry conditions, the Cache Valley Fire Public Education Coalition is issuing firework restrictions in some areas, effective immediately and will continue throughout the summer. Affected areas include the following: • Logan- East of 1700 East, north of 400 North: east of 1400 East south of 400 North. • North Logan – east of 1600 East between 1700 North and 3500 North • Hyde Park – east of 400 East from the south to the north border of the city • Smithfield – East of 700 East from the southern border of the city to Center Street.
