This Fourth of July, personal fireworks and sparklers could easily spark forest fires, according to the Virginia Dept. of Forestry. In a recent news release, the agency warned that a lack of rain throughout the month of June has left much surrounding timber particularly dry and vulnerable to wildfires this summer. As an alternative to personal fireworks displays this year, they urge residents to attend one of the many public events scheduled around the D.C. Metro area.
Previously, we have posted fireworks safety guidelines on the DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog.
