Fireworks put both lives and property at risk | Letter to the Editor

I’d like to advise our neighbors that their illegal aerial fireworks on July 4th were dangerous.

In the worst drought conditions that have ever existed, in the woods, right next to tinder-dry grass and hay fields, you set off boxes of illegal mortars and you thought it was really fun.

Did you ever imagine what could happen if there had been one ember that caught fire? Have you no regard for your neighbors’ lives or property or your own? Not to mention the livestock and pets that you terrified.

One can only hope that you might get a clue and go to a professional display next year and leave us alone. And much safer for your absence.
