Officials Stress Fire Holiday Safety

Sponsored by:

If you cause a fire this holiday weekend… you could get the bill for putting that fire out.

The state fire marshal and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection firefighters are stressing the importance of fire safety this July Fourth holiday. Randy Roxon with CDF says parents need to watch their children closely. Even safe and sane fireworks can start a fire or cause an injury.

If a fire does start… and firefighters are called in.. those responsible could be charged for suppression costs.

Mother Lode fire officials remind residents that fireworks of any kind are NOT allowed in Tuolumne County and are prohibited in certain areas of Calaveras County as well.

Call your neighborhood fire department for more information.
