July 4th is coming up and for many Americans that means fireworks. But, remember that most fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Colorado Springs. The possession and use of fireworks can lead to a five hundred dollar fine and up to 90 days in jail; and a fire started by fireworks that threatens or damages property is considered arson. Fire stations in Colorado Springs have created amnesty drop-off boxes to help encourage people to dispose of illegal fireworks.
