Circumstances: Each year several fires in Shasta County are started from the use of illegal fireworks. In Shasta County, all fireworks are illegal to possess and discharge including the cities of Redding, Anderson, and Shasta Lake. Each year fire agencies expend many personnel hours extinguishing and investigating fireworks caused fires. Fire agencies believe illegal fireworks are often transported into California from other states. These fireworks are classified as “dangerous” and unlawful to possess in all parts of California. Allied agencies of the Shasta Arson Task Force are asking the public to report those individuals distributing or selling fireworks in Shasta County.
