Reminder: all fireworks are illegal in Claremont

As Claremonters prepare for a fabulous Fourth of July, the Claremont Police Department is reminding residents that all fireworks are illegal in the City of Trees.

The reasons, according to a release from the police, include an increased fire danger to the dry and brittle hillsides above town and potential harm to young children.

More about firework safety can be found on the Los Angeles County Fire Department website at http://www.fire.lacounty.gov/safety-messages/fireworks-safety/
