“The use of fireworks in the city limits has been banned,” he said.
“Because fireworks are a pyrotechnic, they can start fires.”
Lewis said one of his main concerns is that all children using fireworks have adult supervision.
“Adults need to examine the type of fireworks the kids are using,” he said.
