The spread of illegal fireworks in the city was further emphasized by a house fire caused by fireworks last summer. I am the vice chair of a task force reviewing the problem. It should be noted that all fireworks are illegal in Milwaukee County unless part of a permitted display. The task force is reviewing the legality under state law of the permits sold at fireworks stores in other counties. Besides the fire danger and danger of injury, the illegal fireworks disturb the peace and cause unneeded worry and aggravation to residents. Please don't buy or use fireworks.
