July Fourth warning on fireworks, firearms

The Menlo Park police would like to remind residents that fireworks and gunfire are illegal ways to celebrate the Fourth of July. That includes "safe and sane" fireworks, which reportedly are just as capable of setting your yard on fire as any other kind.

Anyone lighting fireworks or firing guns within city limits may be warned, cited, or arrested, according to police, and residents can report illegal holiday activity by calling 330-6300.
