County residents: Don't shoot fireworks during ban

June 27, 2012

Saline County's burn ban means that the individual use of fireworks is prohibited anywhere in the county, according to a spokesperson for County Judge Lanny Fite.
In Benton, vendors may not sell fireworks during this period, but their sale is still allowed in the county for now, Fite said.
"The county ban doesn't prohibit the sale of fireworks, but it does prohibit the discharge unless a permit has been issued by the Office of Emergency Management," the county spokesperson said.
Saline County is among 52 in the state that have outlawed fireworks during the hot, dry weather.
