Providence relaxes some fireworks restrictions

After banning fireworks entirely for the month of July, Providence City officials have decided to relax some restrictions in anticipation of Utah’s 24th of July holiday. Providence City Mayor Ron Liechty and the Providence City Council have agreed to allow the use of fireworks in the city, however some restrictions still apply.

Fireworks will be allowed in all areas of the city except for areas east of 400 East and south of Canyon Road (600 South) only.

On July 2 Providence City announced that the use of fireworks would be prohibited throughout the entire city. A series of rain storms and relatively cooler temperatures over the past two weeks has made it possible for the city to ease the restrictions. The threat of wildfires still exists and fire officials continue to warn people of firework safety and the possibility of additional wildfires.
