PHOENIX - Stands, tents and even stores selling fireworks have popped up across Arizona, thanks to a state law legalizing the sale of consumer fireworks two years ago.
But these fireworks aren’t legal to use everywhere they’re sold.
While cities can’t prohibit the sale of consumer fireworks, many cities have prohibited their use within town limits.
Here is a list of places where consumer firework use is allowed, according to city websites:
Casa Grande: Use only permitted on December 31, January 1 and July 4.
Glendale: Use only permitted on private property.
Litchfield Park: Consumer fireworks use only permitted on private property.
Queen Creek: Use only permitted on July 3-5, December 31 and January 1 on private property.
Yuma: It is illegal to possess, transport, discharge, or sell fireworks within the City of Yuma.
Use of “aerial” consumer fireworks, including sky and bottle rockets, firecrackers, roman candles and aerials, is prohibited in Arizona except as part of a permitted public firework display, according to the Tucson Fire Department .
Novelty items, such as sparklers, smoke balls, snakes and party poppers are typically deregulated and allowed within city limits.
However, some cities regulate use of novelty items as well.
Anyone planning on using any firework device should check with their city for specific information.
