Cedar Rapids reminds people of fireworks law ahead of the holiday

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The City of Cedar Rapids is reminding people that it is illegal to shoot off fireworks within city limits. 

A violation of the law could result in a $625 fine which requires a court appearance. 

Fireworks were legal in Cedar Rapids over the Fourth of July holiday last year but the city says they resulted in 3 building fires and 21 injuries. 

There will be a professional firework show in downtown Cedar Rapids tomorrow night to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.
