Wheeler Shuts Down Fireworks Sales In Portland

(Portland, OR)  --  Mayor Ted Wheeler is shutting down fireworks sales in Portland.  Wheeler signed an emergency declaration yesterday immediately banning all sales of fireworks because of the high fire danger.  The ban comes one day after Fire Chief Sara Boone banned the use of fireworks.  Wheeler says it's not an easy decision because of the effect on businesses that sell fireworks, but he says it's necessary to reduce threats posed by wildfires.
