Elm Grove cancels fireworks

July 3, 2012

Elm Grove has canceled its Independence Day fireworks display due to the dry conditions and the launch site's proximity to wooded and grassy areas of Village Park, Police Chief James Gage announced today.

The fireworks display will be rescheduled for an upcoming weekend, possibly Labor Day; details will be forthcoming.

All other Independence Day activities remain as scheduled.

Additionally, the Village of Elm Grove, by order of Fire Chief William Selzer, has imposed a complete outdoor burning ban, to include all personal fireworks, such as sparklers, snakes and similar combustibles.

This burning ban extends to all outdoor fire pits and outdoor fireplaces. This ban remains in effect, until rescinded by Selzer or his designee.

Outdoor charcoal and gas operated grills are not banned on private property; however, extreme caution is urged while using these outdoor cooking devices. All outdoor cooking devices are banned from the Village Park.
