No Fireworks Ban Yet in Howard County

HOWARD COUNTY - Howard County already has a burn ban in place but no ban on fireworks, at least for now.

They've had the burn ban for a couple of weeks but fire officials are concerned that dry conditions and fireworks will be a dangerous combination.

One of the reasons there is not a ban, the required 15 day notice can't be met in time before fireworks go on sale.

for now, officials are talking to fireworks vendors and asking them not to sale certain types of fireworks, like bottle rockets.
