“Here is why we are working so hard to enforce the fireworks ban,” police said. “This fire started in some bushes likely caused by fireworks and quickly engulfed a tree and was threatening a nearby home. Officers tried using their fire extinguishers but the fire grew too large. They evacuated the nearby home and waited for the fire department who did a great job extinguishing the fire. This was a very close call at SW 128 and 4 SW.”]]>
