Fireworks sales in unincorporated Clark County begin Monday.

Residents can use fireworks from 9 a.m. to midnight on the Fourth of July. Those who use illegal fireworks or any fireworks outside of permitted hours are subject to a $500 fine for first-time offenses.

More information about fireworks rules in jurisdictions throughout the county can be found at www.clark.wa.gov/community-development/fireworks.

The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office recommended in a news release that residents and visitors purchase fireworks from local vendors to ensure compliance with rules. The office also recommended the following safety measures:

  • Always have a bucket of water and water hose ready to douse any fire.
  • Assign a responsible adult to supervise fireworks use.
  • Use fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from buildings, vehicles and dry vegetation.
  • Never aim fireworks at people or structures.
  • Never attempt to alter fireworks or relight “duds” that fail to ignite.
  • Place used fireworks in a bucket of water to soak overnight before disposing of them.
