ST. JOSEPH COUNTY – If you live in a county that has not banned the use of fireworks yet, but there is still a burn ban in effect, what does this mean for your 4th of July plans?
Liz Keiling and members of the Harris Prairie Church of Christ knew fireworks would be best way to fulfill their mission in the Dominican Republic.
"This year we're doing a vacation bible school," said Keiling.
Sales at the fireworks tent outside Meijer on Grape Road would help with some of the costs, but business has been a little slow.
The extremely dry weather outside and all of those burn bans haven't helped their cause either. In fact, many customers are confused about the laws.
"The understanding is even though there's a burn ban they could still purchase fireworks," said Keiling.
A burn ban doesn't stop you from buying fireworks, but the big question – will you be able to set off your fireworks?
