With fireworks comes the danger of fires happening around town. Though the ban on aerial display fireworks has been lifted, they are only to be used outside of city limits. This is the first time the ban has been lifted in recent years and the Laredo Fire Department just asks that you use caution this July 4th holiday. "After an extended period of drought we're still at risk here in the city limits. We're are still considered a burn ban by the state of Texas with that being said we ask the public to be careful.” Every year Laredo has it's fair share of wildfires but compared to previous years were on the low end. The recent rain has also helped in keeping the community safe from wildfires.
