Enjoy some fireworks this Fourth of July

Hutchinson County residents can enjoy fireworks outside the city limits this Fourth of July. Yesterday morning, the Hutchinson County Commissioners agreed to take no action on the order prohibiting or restricting certain fireworks in unincorporated areas of Hutchinson County. There was also no action continuing or rescinding a county burn ban. This will be a year for fireworks. According to Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards, the county has seen a normal amount of rain fall this year, but in the Panhandle area it is still possible to have dry conditions between now and the Fourth of July. Firework stands should be expected to open by the end of June.
