BELLINGHAM, Wash. – People caught setting off illegal fireworks or using fireworks at inappropriate times will pay the price.

Fire crackers, bottle rockets and the like are illegal.

Whatcom County Fire Inspector Mitch Nolze says there are serious consequences for lighting up illegal fireworks or using any fireworks at the wrong time of day.

 

He says people could be charged with a criminal or gross misdemeanor.

In Whatcom County, people can buy or use fireworks this week only through Saturday, between 9:00 AM to 11:00 PM, and from 9:00 AM to midnight on the Fourth of July.

Fireworks are completely banned in Bellingham.
