PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM)-The dry conditions aren't stopping some people from lighting off fireworks ahead of July 4.
Plainfield Township firefighters say a Saturday afternoon fire at 5 Mile and the East Beltline was started by a firework. The flames were close to an apartment complex, but no one had to evacuate.
Many states are calling off their holiday fireworks displays over a fire a stray rocket could ignite the dry brush, triggering a wildfire. Right now, nearly three-quarters of the country is in a drought. States from Utah to Indiana are warning residents against using fireworks in their backyards.
