In Oregon, many fireworks are illegal.  But that isn't stopping people from trying to find them this Fourth of July.


Illegal fireworks in Oregon are those that fly, explode, eject balls of fire, or  move a large distance across the ground.  Bend Deputy Fire Marshal Cindy Kettering says this year "sky lanterns" are also a big draw, and people seem to be trying to track down  illegal fireworks.  "I visited several of our fireworks stands yesterday and one theme I’m hearing is that people are asking them 'where can you find illegal fireworks?' And that's really a mistake.  You don't want to have them in your possession.  You don't want to be setting off illegal fireworks.”  The ticket for using an illegal firework can be as high as $750, not including other costs and court fees.  She reminds you that in Bend, you must be at least 18 to buy sell and possess fire works.  Fireworks went on sale in Oregon last Saturday, the 23rd.
