An explosion of color illuminates the night following the inaugural Ridgefield Raptors game at the Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex June 4. Those looking to celebrate at home with fireworks this Fourth of July need to make sure to note the rules where they live, as discharge times and penalties for use outside of those times varies by jurisdiction.

Sales of consumer fireworks online may not be delivered to a residence, the Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office said in a release. 

The statement, clarifying the rules for online fireworks purchases, noted that fireworks may be delivered to the buyer at a “licensed consumer fireworks sales retail facility during the legally authorized time periods.”

Fireworks sold online must be legal in Washington and the local jurisdictions of the sale, and advertisements must contain the license number and expiration date of the licensee.
