No fireworks in Carmi | News
There will be no fireworks of any kind in Carmi this year. Extremely dry conditions have asked the public to cooperate in a city-wide ban on using fireworks and the city's professional display has also been canceled.
Police and fire officials instituted a ban on all forms of burning last week and that ban now extends to fireworks.
The traditional July 4 display has been postponed and it's possible if conditions improve, the city will reschedule, but as of now that date has not been announced.
Hot, dry weather is expected to continue for at least the next week.
