VIDEO: Cottonwood Heights neighbors used a coffin prop to protest at two locations in Salt Lake County on Monday. Around 11:00 a.m. they were at the Utah State Capitol to protest lawmakers and demand they change fireworks regulations to include a ban on residents using aerial fireworks. They argue the aerial fireworks easily catch foliage surrounding their home on fire and that had led to damaged homes. “I thought it was very significant (the coffin) showing that the lives that were lost in California, this could happen in Salt Lake City,” said Cottonwood Heights neighbor, and protest organizer Dave Schoeneck Junior.
