The summer heat is here which means The Fourth of July is right around the corner. This year the state of Nebraska has some exciting news. Sales of bottles and skyrockets have been approved and will begin this summer. Although they are legal in Nebraska now, it is still illegal to discharge these rockets within city limits due to their significant fire danger. Many may be excited but fire department officials have some concerns. "They do cause fires and we’re just concerned with people shooting them off all over that we’re going to have a lot of problems." Said George Lewis - City Fire Marshal at NPFD.
