You can now buy fireworks – but can you set them off?
State-wide fireworks sales started Friday, less than a week before the 4th of July. While state law allows you to set off fireworks from 9AM-11PM from June 29th to July 3rd, 9AM-midnight on July 4th, and 9AM-9PM on July 5th, many cities and counties have chosen to create stricter rules. Independence Day fireworks are banned throughout Chelan County, for example. In Kittitas County, you can set off fireworks in unincorporated parts of the county on July 4th, but they're banned within Cle Elum, Ellensburg, and Roslyn city limits. And in Clark County, WSP's official graphic shows the restrictions are even tighter: north of 219th Street, the county follows state fireworks restrictions, but south of 219th Street, you can only set off fireworks after 9:00 in the morning on July 4th.
