No fireworks will be allowed in any state park in Nebraska on July 4. It's just too dry and the fire risk is too high. The Nebraska Games and Parks Commission announced the ban on Monday. It includes the seven state recreation areas that typically allow fireworks -- Branched Oak, Memphis, Fort Kearny, Fremont, Two Rivers, Pawnee and Wagon Train. Officials urge campers and visitors to be careful with fire, and properly dispose of charcoal and douse all campfires before leaving. Firefighters have been fighting 11 fires in the state, all reported after a dry lightning storm on Saturday. A fire has destroyed about 1,000 acres in the Nebraska National Forest in the Sandhills in the north-central part of the state.
