During the July 4th holiday, the City of Port Huron is reminding residents and visitors alike to please be courteous of others while enjoying fireworks. No fireworks should be used after 11:00 p.m. in an effort to allow others the enjoyment of their neighborhoods and the ability to get their children to sleep at a reasonable hour. Officials at the city say that even though state law now allows for bottle rockets and other types of fireworks to be purchased, residents must be certain that the area they are setting off the fireworks is a safe one for such explosive devices and not too close to homes or businesses that would be a fire hazard. Fireworks are not allowed on public property, school property, church property or another person’s property without the property owner’s express consent. They also ask that if you are using outdoor fire pits you be considerate of your neighbors who may have asthma or other breathing difficulties. Fire pits must be 25 feet from any structure and fires on windy days are discouraged. Remember also, that conditions are extremely dry, so be extra cautious.
