Fireworks set off in Prospector, even as they are banned in the state
The Park City Police Department received at least two reports of people setting off fireworks last weekend in Prospector.
Someone was lighting fireworks on Doc Holliday Drive at 3:18 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3, the police were told. Public police logs, however, do not provide details, and they do not indicate where on the Prospector street the fireworks were heard.
Earlier that morning, at 2:13 a.m., someone on Ina Avenue told the police they had heard fireworks. The person told the police the fireworks landed on a house. Ina Avenue is close to Doc Holliday Drive.
