City reminds residents of fireworks rules



In Westminster, home fireworks that are legal in the State of Colorado are allowed from midnight on July 3 to noon on July 5. If the state bans fireworks because of dry conditions, the City of Westminster will likely follow suit. Sparklers, fountains and non-exploding pyrotechnics that do not leave the ground and are legal in the State of Colorado are allowed. Any device that explodes or leaves the ground on its own power is illegal. That means firecrackers, cherry bombs, bottle rockets and similar items are not allowed.
