FOREST CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The mayor of a northern Iowa community has been fined for illegally selling fireworks.
   
Online court records show 68-year-old George Andersen pleaded guilty and was fined $250. He's mayor of Nora Springs.
   
Forest City police had cited Andersen May 17. He was selling fireworks out of a van. Police say Andersen told an officer he didn't have a permit.
   
On Monday a Winnebago County District Court ordered the destruction of the fireworks seized as evidence.
