Firework stands across the Treasure Valley open June 23, and the Boise Fire Department is again reminding people to be safe when using fireworks to celebrate. Every year Boise Fire responds to multiple fires started by fireworks. Last year Boise Fire responded to 14 firework caused fires in July, out of the 26 total throughout the Treasure Valley. A fire in Eagle during October was also started by fireworks that burned 440 acres. If you plan on setting off your own fireworks please review the safety information below detailing where and when it’s okay to light off fireworks. We also encourage you to attend the City of Boise public fireworks display at Ann Morrison Park on the 4th of July.
