County issues fireworks order

Resolution limits hours when fireworks can be set off

On June 8, the Klickitat County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution that limits the hours when fireworks can be set off in all unincorporated areas of Klickitat County.

"Whereas the Klickitat County Interagency Fire Association has recommended that a restriction be placed upon the discharge of fireworks within the unincorporated areas of Klickitat County ... there shall be no discharge of fireworks, common or otherwise ... except for July 4 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m.," read the resolution.

The commissioners also pointed out that local fire districts and the Department of Natural Resources may hold individuals or their legal guardians responsible for the costs of cleaning up fires caused by the negligent use of fireworks.
