Although the weather certainly hasn’t been indicative of it, the Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner and local officials are gearing up for annual community celebrations and regulation enforcement.
Fireworks go on sale Monday. Local police and fire officials say they will be on patrol to make sure residents celebrate Independence Day safely and legally.
The city of Camas follows state guidelines when it comes to fireworks laws and regulations. That means legal fireworks can be discharged from Monday, June 28, to Monday, July 5.
The Camas fire marshal and police officers will be canvassing the streets on July 4, and a Camas Fire Department brush rig will be making the rounds so that it is readily available in the event of a fire.
“We are going to be out combing the neighborhoods looking for violations and making sure people are following the rules,” said CPD Capt. Rob Skeens.
