June 30, 2014 (San Diego's East County)--These words are make fire officials cringe says Fire Cief Sam DiGiovanna, East County Magazine’s in-house fire chief and columnist.  It will be a long three-day 4th of July weekend.

As drought conditions worsen and the fire danger escalates, fire officials recommend everyone attend public fireworks shows, and leave the lighting to the professionals.  Purchase or use of fireworks by individuals is illegal across San Diego County.

“The problem is many cities that ban fireworks are already seeing an influx of illegal fireworks being set off, says Chief DiGiovanna.
