Fireworks heavily restricted in Inland Northwest

August Bress/The Spokesman-Review
Fireworks prohibited year-round on public lands

Fireworks are prohibited year-round on public lands including national forests, wildlife refuges and parks and Bureau of Land Management lands, as well as state wildlife lands. Starting today, even campfires will be prohibited on Washington Department of Natural Resources lands.

Although still easy to find, personal fireworks such as sparklers and fountain cones are heavily restricted across the Inland Northwest and banned in many communities. Violating state and local fireworks regulations carry fines and, in some cases, the possibility of jail time in Idaho.
