July 4th Fireworks - Some Cancellations this year - Where & Why ?

    From Arizona to Florida, there will be fewer fireworks shows this 4th of July. Many cities and counties across the nation in the drought-stricken south are banning fireworks because of the risk of wildfires. Dozens of states, from the Southeast to the West, are in a severe drought condition. Wildfires already have charred thousands of square miles in recent months.

    New Mexico's governor banned fireworks on state and private wild lands. Officials in one Georgia County banned sales, shut down local roadside vendors and even had fireworks removed from store shelves. In Texas, dozens of cities have canceled shows. From large shows in Austin Texas and San Antonio to small-town celebrations in the state, fireworks shows are being cancelled for fear of wildfires.
