Effective July 1, Sandy Fire District will put into effect a fireworks and burning ban within Sandy Fire District (including the City of Sandy) due to the long period of extreme heat and dry
conditions. Temperatures are expected to reach in the mid 90's with no change through the holiday. In addition to banning fireworks, the ban covers open-flame burning, which includes wood burning
camp fires and charcoal briquette fires. Portable cooking stoves using natural gas or propane bottled fuels are still allowed.
