VIDEO: Two Utah fire chiefs urged residents to use the same level of caution and compliance with fireworks for the upcoming Pioneer Day holiday as they did over the Fourth of July. "Continue to do what you did over the Fourth," said Fire Chief Clint Smith with the Draper City Fire Department. "We can't let our guard down by any means. The threat still exists. The threat is still significant and very real." In areas where fireworks are permitted, Utah law allows them to be discharged starting on Thursday, July 22, through Sunday, July 25, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day. On the actual holiday, July 24, the discharge time is extended until midnight. Ahead of July 4, many Utah cities enacted fireworks restrictions that remain in place for the July 24 holiday.
