Firework sales blast off this weekend

Firework sales blast off this weekend

The Fourth of July is just a week away, and firework sales begin this weekend!

Washington State Fire Marshal Chuck Duffy wants to remind residents to know the local laws before purchasing and discharging fireworks, and to make sure you are only using legal fireworks. This year, 937 licenses were issued for retail firework stands.

A fireworks ban has been in place in the unincorporated areas of Spokane County for 21 years, as well as Spokane, Spokane Valley, Cheney and Liberty Lake.

Fireworks are legal on private property in Airway Heights, Medical Lake and Deer Park.

Bottle rockets, missiles and firecrackers are illegal anywhere in Washington state.

In Coeur d'Alene, non-aerial fireworks are allowed on private property but not in public places like Tubbs Hill or City Park.

If you do find yourself in an area where fireworks are allowed, there are some guidelines you to keep in mind to make sure your family has a safe and fun Fourth.

Cougs take flag to new heights

It’s tradition to fly the WSU Cougar flag wherever you are in the world, but the WSU Physics and Astronomy Club took the tradition to new heights. During Mom’s Weekend, the club launched the flag 100,000 feet into the atmosphere. Crimson and grey was filmed flying above the earth before returning. WSU’s Brenna Kelly has the story on Cougs in space.


The flag is up for auction on ebay.
