HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- Due to burn bans covering the majority of the state, personal fireworks are not allowed. However, professional displays with the proper permits are still a go.
Hosting a fireworks display during a burn ban is no easy task but county officials say as long as they meet a laundry list of requirements, both local and state, professional displays are allowed.
"I understand the tradition. The 4th of July. I've had fireworks since I was a kid but we've got to bring some common sense to this," says Cliff Jackson says he's worried.
Worried that embers from the traditional fireworks display a few streets over will create a serious problem for residents.
