Sioux Falls Fire/Rescue encourages common sense over the 4th


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls Fire/Rescue Chief Jim Sideras stresses safety when discharging fireworks during Fourth of July celebrations.

     Sideras says the lowly sparkler burns at 1,800 degrees and demands parental supervision.

     Sideras says it’s illegal to shoot fireworks in Sioux Falls for obvious reasons.  Fire/Rescue has responded to fires on roofs and decks caused by bottle rockets.  He says it's safer to expolode fireworks outside of town because there's less potential for damage to property.  And, Sideras says,  homes in Sioux Falls are occupied.

     Sideras says a firework's citation comes with a $95 dollar fine.

     He also reminds revelers to pick up their firework trash.
