El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso County has decided to ban the sale and use of aerial fireworks through July 5th in the unincorporated areas.
On Monday, County officials will consider implementing a full ban.
County Judge Veronica Escobar says she plans on issuing a disaster declaration because of the drought and if Commissioners back her up, it would be illegal to light fireworks of any kind in El Paso County on July 4th.
