Official warns of fireworks hazard at year's end

Posted:

A change in state law that will allow for the sale of fireworks this week comes as most of the state has little or no snow. Yankton Deputy Fire Chief Larry Nickles told the Yankton Press and Dakotan that people who plan to discharge fireworks during the New Year's holiday must take measures to avoid a fire. A law enacted this year in South Dakota allows for the sale and discharge of fireworks from Dec. 28-31. Nickles said it is unusual to be worrying about grass fires in December but conditions are perfect for them.
