And because of that risk Judge Gossom spoke to several stores today about the danger. He says according to the law they are not fireworks so they are not included under the county ban. He says if you do plan to use them please do so with caution.
"That wire when you throw it down can start a fire instantaneously. So I ask anyone if the do purchase those items be very careful. Put them in a safe receptacle after using them. But we really would rather you didn't use them," said Judge Woody Gossom, Wichita County.
The firework ban in Wichita County currently extends through Tuesday July 5th, however Judge Gossom is currently working with Governor Rick Perry's office to extend that ban through the end of September.
