Salt Lake City Fire Chief Karl Lieb goes door to door distributing informational flyers to promote fireworks safety in a neighborhood near 600 North and Redwood Road in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. As Utahns prepare for the Fourth of July celebrations, fire officials want to make sure they’re prepared to safely light fireworks as the state heads into the driest part of the season. State law dictates fireworks can only be lit between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. from July 2 to July 5, and again July 22 to July 25 in observance of Pioneer Day.
