WARD COUNTY - You can shoot off fireworks for the fourth in Ward County but there's a stipulation.

County Commissioners banned rockets with sticks and missiles with fins.

Right now the county is under a burn ban.

But if the drought index reaches the magic number of 575, there won't be any fireworks at all.

They'll seek an emergency declaration.
