In West Virginia, fireworks that go up in the air, or make a loud noise are illegal for consumer use. Sparklers, however, are legal, but it's never a good idea to set one on the dry ground, even if it's already extinguished.
According to Marshall County EMA Director Tom Hart, Cameron has to cancel their fireworks because the Fire Marshal said it was simply too dry.
"Anytime fireworks have an ignition source with these conditions, the grass is very dry and can ignite at any time," Chief Investigator of the Wheeling Fire Department Dave Palmer said. "Even with fireworks in the city, it's very dangerous and are taking the measures to keep exposure down."
Fire engines will be located on each side of the Suspension Bridge during the Wednesday night's fireworks show in case of emergency.
