As the weather preceding the Fourth of July may be better than usual this year, the danger from fireworks-caused fires will be higher. It would be nice if local authorities would publish their intent to actually enforce fireworks ordinances this year and then follow through.

Bottle rockets and reservation fireworks discharged into dry trees and grassy fields seem to be obvious dangers. Where common sense does not prevail, a little police enforcement could certainly help.
