WALLA WALLA -- State officials remind people that online purchases of fireworks are illegal. Fireworks may be bought only from licensed retail fireworks stands during the legal sales period, said state Fire Marshal Charles Duffy. Orders for fireworks cannot be placed over the Internet or posted on websites such as Craig's List.
Sales of fireworks in Walla Walla County and the cities of Walla Walla and College Place began Sunday. For more details, go to wsp.wa.gov/fire/fireworks.htm.
