The noisemakers were out in full force Monday, celebrating our nations' birthday. Firefighters had their hands full responding to fires caused from fireworks. Even the annual "burning of the butte” was a truer statement this year, as at least two small blazes were the product of the professional fireworks shown on Pilot Butte. Sparks from the show ignited the dry brush and grass on the lower level of the butte. And in Prineville, their professional fireworks display also sparked a fire in the rimrock above town. Illegal fireworks were the cause of many more blazes around Central Oregon including one in La Pine and another in Redmond's Dry Canyon.
