CALFIRE Operation Nets 29 Felonies, 165 Misdemeanors and 48k Pounds of Illegal Fireworks

CALFIRE reported Friday that they have concluded a statewide operation aimed to prevent illegal fireworks from entering California.

Between June 26 and June 30, it resulted in 29 felonies, 165 misdemeanor citations, 25 infractions and the confiscation of over 48,440 pounds of illegal fireworks.

“Everyone needs to understand the dangers associated with the use of illegal fireworks or misuse of legal fireworks. Any person who starts a fire from fireworks—even accidentally—can be held liable for the fire suppression costs as well as property damage costs,” said mike Richwine, California State Fire Marshal. “possession of illegal fireworks can lead to a possible fine of up to $50,000 as well as prison time for up to one year.”

CALFIRE says it is taking a zero tolerance stand against anyone in possession of or transporting illegal fireworks and say each year hundreds of injuries and fires occur caused by illegal and misuse of fireworks.

Fireworks that are illegal in California are those that explode, leave the ground, or move about the ground uncontrollably. Illegal fireworks include items such as skyrockets, bottle rockets, and roman candles. Anyone caught with illegal fireworks could face severe fines and even arrests.

All legal fireworks include “safe and sane” logo from the California State Fire Marshal on the packaging but some illegal fireworks, especially those from out of state, may not forged logo on them. If you are not sure if your fireworks are legal, you can contact your nearest CALFIRE or local fire station.

  2. Geeezzzzz can’t we just celebrate our country’s birthday in peace????? This is a disgrace!- Like Trump would say… Safe and Sane fireworks are fine. I highly doubt LEO are going to give tickets. Especially in this day of age.

  3. Starting a fire accidently or intentionally with any kind of Fireworks is a crime as it should be
    …but lets not Ever Forget there is NO SUCH THING AS ILLEGAL FIREWORKS OR ILLEGAL FIREARMS in the United States of America!! ….there are only CORRUPT TYRANNICAL OATH BREAKERS that have eroded and degraded and PERVERTED THE FREEDOMS our FOUNDING FATHERS FOUGHT AND DIED FOR and if you are a civil servant (LEO or Fire or other) enforcing UNCONSTITUTIONAL Policy, you are the Problem not the solutuon. And you should resign and go drive a trash truck were you can still provide for your family but you will be in close contact with more of the Trash that you have become.
    Officers wonder why regular Americans start to listen to the stupid commies about defunding police ,…..well gentlemen Busting Freedom lovers for any lind of Fireworks in America especially around the 4th of July is pretty high up there on the list…
    You really need to do some soul searching on this for a few days and get in touch with our real Roots….maybe watch the movie THE PATRIOT a few hundred times till you get your house in order….also Stop shooting people’s dogs, Dogs are our Family members…imagine how you would feel if cops randomly busted in YOUR HOUSE and shot one of YOUR CHILDREN…..Do you think you would let that just slide ? Learn some empathy for Fucks sake and Stop doing red flags and No Know Warrants they are in fact UNCONSTITUTIONAL even though a temporary communist majority on Scotus once said they were ok…. its actually UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!
    People will gladly consider you heros again if you all start Following the actual ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION AGAIN !!
    We want to Love you guys….we want to be Proud of you again….please cut the Anti-American shit immediately.

  4. Cal Fire takes no consideration on a person’s mental status either. They just think anyone who starts a fire is sane and guilty. They are about to do in prison someone who has never been in trouble with the law and had a mental break because of mountain lion was stalking him and he started a fire to keep it away. I did not believe a person can lose themselves like that but I watched it happen before my eyes. A full-blown psychotic break. He does not belong in a prison. A guy who had a good job great credit and never raised his voice or hurt anyone in his life. Shame on you people, I have no respect for Cal Fire when they don’t have any respect for a person’s mental health status and their past history shows they have no criminal intent or history. I know it’s in the DA’s hands but Cal Fire is the one that made the charge.

  5. If the United States can be said to have an actual birthday, that date should be June 21, 1788, when New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the Constitution—the number specified in order for the Constitution to be in full and binding effect for all 13 former colonies.

  6. Dana, I wish more people would respect our constitution before it’s too late. Thank you. To all others, vote with intelligence as it may be your last participation of this great country that’s trying to be hijacked.

  7. Hahaha cal fire, look at your fail. We the people found out freedom. You thought you stopped the fireworks?!?!? Trump 2020 you sheep
