Workers at 911 in the Bend area fielded 82 complaints about illegal fireworks this Fourth of July. Lt. Chris Carney of Bend Police says the fine is $908, but tough to enforce. "Part of the problem is we see the fireworks go off we go to that location and no one is light off firework and no one is admitting. Hey, we had illegal fireworks and they we were lighting them off." He says they are not trying to ruin the fun and patriotism of the holiday;- but illegal fireworks are explosive devices that can be very dangerous. “We realize they are pretty, but they are explosive devices and they can malfunction, start a fire, wipe out a neighborhood.
