Fontana P.D. says: Have fun, stay safe, don’t use illegal fireworks on Independence Day | News

The city of Fontana has an important message for residents who want to celebrate the nation’s independence: Have fun, but don’t use illegal fireworks.

Fines for possession and use of illegal fireworks range from $2,500 to $10,000. Residents are urged to purchase legal “Safe and Sane” fireworks to avoid fines, potential injury and property damage.

All fireworks (including Safe and Sane) in unincorporated Fontana County areas and the area north of Summit Avenue are prohibited. Property within the city north of Summit Avenue, west of Interstate 15 and east of Lytle Creek Road is considered a high fire hazard area, and fireworks of any kind are not allowed there.

In a Facebook post on July 1, the Fontana Police Department said officers arrested two people and seized illegal fireworks, and one of the fireworks sellers also had an unregistered firearm.

“Be safe and responsible this holiday weekend,” the Facebook post said.

Residents can report illegal fireworks to PD’s non-emergency dispatch line at (909) 350-7700.
