Vacaville steps up fireworks enforcement

By From page A3 | July 03, 2013

VACAVILLE — City officials reminded residents that all forms of fireworks are illegal in Vacaville, including the so-called “safe and sane” variety.

An enforcement team composed of Vacaville police and firefighters will focus its efforts on dangerous fireworks throughout the city over the Fourth of July holiday, the city said in a press release Tuesday.

Dangerous fireworks include aerial shells, sky rockets, bottle rockets and other illegal fireworks.

“These fireworks are the cause of many fires in Solano County and will not be tolerated in the city of Vacaville,” the press release said.

Anyone in possession of illegal fireworks is subject to arrest.

The type of firework possessed will determine if the offense is a misdemeanor of felony, the press release said.

The city is hosting a free Fourth of July celebration at the Creekwalk/Andrews Park. Park gates will open at 5 p.m. and music will start at 6:30 p.m. Food and craft vendors will be on site. Fireworks begin around 9:20 p.m.

    Yeah, this idle threat will definitely keep people from firing off their bottle rockets and other illegal fireworks.
