GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) They remind you setting off fireworks is a class 3 misdemeanor, punishable by a $750 fine. We're told typically when there's a ban in place you can still light off things like cones, fountains, and sparklers. However, this year all fireworks are illegal. Officials say if you do see someone lighting off fireworks, call police immediately.
"If you do decide that you're going to call in and let us know, the best thing that you can do is actually be a witness for us, by that I mean you provide your name, your contact information, the exact address of where this is happening, and then when our officers get there; you provide the information to them," says Kate Porras, Public Information Officer with the Grand Junction Police Department.
