County Sheriff’s Report
July 18, 2007
Last week, banned fireworks were discharged several times in Summit County, as deputies pledged to crack down on people who violate the fireworks ban in the state.
Even fireworks allowed by state law are prohibited in July under the "emergency fireworks ordinance" the Summit County Commission enacted July 11.
"As you can see from the terrain and the environment, it’s a wise thing to do right now," Park City Assistant Fire Chief Scott Adams said about the ban.
Recent calls received by dispatchers at the Summit County Sheriff’s Office include:
Fireworks were allegedly discharged near Daybreaker Drive in Jeremy Ranch July 8 at 11:29 p.m. At 10:33 p.m. a Pinebrook resident told a dispatcher fireworks were discharged near Buckboard Drive.
On July 8, a brush fire a caller said was burning east of Marion was actually a smoldering campfire a group of people reportedly failed to extinguish around 4 p.m.
