As the 4th of July approaches and many public fireworks displays or sales statewide have been modified, the Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office issued a reminder for fireworks sales, specifically the facts for internet sales.
According to the Fire Marshall, presale of consumer fireworks may occur online under certain conditions:
Fireworks regulations differ between cities throughout Grays Harbor, check with your local fire or police department to be sure the fireworks you purchase are legal to possess and discharge and only purchase legal fireworks.
It is unlawful for any person to use, discharge, ignite or explode any fireworks within the city except on the beach between the Marine View Drive Beach Access and the Damon Beach Approach a minimum of one hundred feet west of the dunes.
It is unlawful for any person to use, discharge, ignite or explode any fireworks within the city except along the beach at Half Moon Bay at least 200 feet west of the beach grass line within the city of Westport.
It shall be strictly prohibited to detonate any type of fireworks that produce an audible effect at any time within one hundred feet (100′) of either side of Pacific Avenue from the southern right of way of Tenth Street South to the northern right of way of Bolstad.
