Vancouver city council approves fireworks ban within city limits

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

It is now illegal to sell and use fireworks within Vancouver city limits. Vancouver City Council approved the ban by a unanimous vote at their meeting on Monday night.

The ban is not set to go into effect until 2017. This gives non-profits who rely on firework sales some time to find other forms of funding.  

The city still plans to hold a public fireworks show at Fort Vancouver on the 4th of July.
