[ARCHIVED] Clarification of the Burn Ban’s Impact on Use of Fireworks in Ellis County

including but not limited to the discharge of ALL fireworks. The exact wording in Section 3: Actions Prohibited reads: “Except as is specifically set out herein, a person violates this order if he burns or otherwise dispenses, emits, explodes, detonates, throws off, or otherwise delivers any spark or fire to, or in the area of any combustible material, including but not limited to all common fireworks, trash, debris, agricultural products, leaves, trees, paper, unless such material is wholly enclosed in a receptacle adequate to completely contain all such flames and/or sparks.”

The subsequent order passed at this same time had to do with the SALE of fireworks, specifically prohibiting the sale of two types of fireworks: “skyrockets with sticks” and “missiles with fins.”
