Fireworks warning for El Pasoans
EL PASO, TX — New Year's Eve is approaching and many people will be celebrating with fireworks, but the El Paso Fire Department wants to remind everyone that fireworks are always illegal in El Paso.
The only time they are legal is if you have a commercial pyrotechnics license which is why we do see occasional fireworks displays in El Paso.
The EPFD says you better think twice before using fireworks because if you're caught, you could be fined up to $250 plus court costs.
Crews will be out in full force on New Year's Eve looking for illegal fireworks activity.
