More areas restrict use of fireworks in Cache County

Due to current and forecasted weather, extremely dry conditions and heavy vegetation from last year’s wet year, very hazardous fire conditions exist throughout Cache Valley and the State of Utah.   Because of these conditions extreme fire behavior has been reported by fire officials and media during current fires in our state. 

Governor Herbert announced that he has banned fireworks in all unincorporated areas of Utah.  He then called on cities and towns to appropriately regulate firework use in their communities.  He declared that he trusted local government leaders to balance allowing the use of fireworks in safe areas and banning the use fireworks in more hazardous areas.  He suggested that cities should keep an area available for fireworks use.  Otherwise, he warned, if people don’t have a legal outlet to discharge fireworks, then they would discharge anywhere.  Finally, he called on Utahns to exercise common sense when using fireworks. 

For the reasons above local fire officials and municipalities have declared the following areas to be restricted from fireworks:
