Reminder: Fireworks illegal within city limits
The Bryan Fire Department Fire Marshal’s Office wants to remind all citizens that possession, storage, attempt to sell or lighted display of fireworks within 5,000 feet of the city limits is illegal.
This includes all items that can be purchased at fireworks stands. With current drought conditions, it has become especially dangerous. Brazos County is enforcing a burn ban as well as restrictions on fireworks that go up in the air (skyrockets with sticks and missiles with fins).
Citations for violating this ordinance carry a $500 to $2,000 fine. The Bryan Fire Department wants all the citizens of Bryan to have a safe and happy July 4 and wants to remind everyone that there will be professional fireworks displays at the conclusion of the Brazos Valley Bombers game on Friday, July 3, and at the George Bush Library at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 4.
