No fireworks at the forest



With the 4th of July next week the sound of fireworks is near. The Fremont-Winema National Forest sends the reminder that possessing, discharging or using any kind of fireworks is prohibited on National Forest lands. Forest managers say the threat of wildfires is too great to allow fireworks, and anyone caught in possession will be subject to confiscation and fines of up to $5,000 and/or six months in jail.
