West Allis takes more cautious approach for fireworks show

June 27, 2012

With the current stretch of dry weather, the West Allis Fire Department will take extra precautions at this year's Fourth of July fireworks, said Lt. Jay Scharfenberg, public information officer.

The entire launch area at the State Fair Park, where the fireworks will be set off on July 4, will be wetted down, he said.

He also reminded city residents that all fireworks are illegal in West Allis, "this year more than ever."
