Fireworks prohibited within city limits
Fourth of July celebrations are right around the corner, but authorities want to remind the public that fireworks are illegal within city limits.
Many fireworks stands opened up early today in preparation for this weekend's celebrations.
But fire officials are reminding people that the use, transport or sale of fireworks is prohibited within city limits according to a City ordinance.
This means if you’re caught with any fireworks inside Laredo city limits, you will face a fine.
Fire officials say they want families to be safe and hope to avoid any fires.
