KCSD: Only Safe Fireworks In County

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind everyone that only fireworks classified as "non-aerial common fireworks" are legal to use throughout Kootenai County, to include all of the incorporated cities within the County.  Non-aerial common fireworks are those that can be purchased in local temporary stands and some businesses throughout the many communities in the County. The only exception to the law is the land within the exterior boundaries of the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation.  The fireworks sold on these lands must be used on these lands and are illegal to possess or use off of these lands. As time allows, deputies will be working emphasis patrols on known high problem areas for fireworks violations.  One area in particular will be in the State Line Village area near the Washington State Line/Major Ben Wolfinger, KCSD news release. More here.

Question: Do you buy fireworks on the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation?
