New Firework Restrictions in Place for 7/24 Celebrations

Aerial fireworks are now banned in Cottonwood Heights.  The city passed an ordinance banning them for the rest of the year after a 25-acre fire caused by fireworks damaged 2 homes on July 4th.

You can shoot fireworks between July 21 and July 27.  However; due to particularly hazardous, dry and hot conditions, the Salt Lake City Fire Department has decided to alter the boundaries.

  • No fireworks will be allowed east of 900 East
  • No fireworks will be allowed west of Redwood Rd.
  • North and South boundaries remain the same; no fireworks are allowed north of S. Temple St., but are allowed going south to the City border.
  • This applies to all fireworks, aerials and otherwise, as the department considers them to be equally culpable in starting fire under the current conditions.

West Jordan has announced 2 locations where people can set off aerial fireworks on July 24, from 9:30 p.m. to midnight.

  • Ron Wood Baseball Complex, 5900 New Bingham Highway
  • The ball fields at Veterans Memorial Park, 1985 W. 7800 South.
