Every day around the Fourth of July, people are injured with personal fireworks.
With burn bans, excessive heat and local regulations, there are few places in St. Louis County where personal firework use is permitted this Fourth of July. Creve Coeur is among the communities where it is illegal to use or set off fireworks. Police said earlier this week that extra patrols will be out to enforce the law. If you are going to use firecrackers, remember to watch out for dry conditions. The Red Cross also offers these helpful safety tips for personal firework usage.
