After fires, concern over Fourth of July fireworks in Sonoma County

Amber Morabito stopped by a Phantom Fireworks stand near downtown Petaluma on Sunday to buy sparklers for her children for the Fourth of July.

Morabito said she understands the threat of wildfires during Northern California summers, but she believes that a little holiday fun won’t cause any harm.

“It’s just a sparkler for the kids,” she said. “I think that’s what’s responsible, and that’s what we get.”

Hot and dry conditions, paired with the devastation of October’s firestorm, have some residents in Sonoma County on edge about the sparks that will be unleashed Wednesday for the holiday.
