US Forest Service: Leave the Fireworks at Home

The U.S. Forest Service is reminding visitors to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests to leave the fireworks at home.

The Forest Service says the use of fireworks is prohibited in national forests and grasslands, regardless of the weather or the upcoming July 4th holiday.

Violators can be fined up to $5,000 and face jail time as well.

Forest visitors are also reminded to ensure that all fires are fully snuffed before leaving them.
