Lancaster County Police respond to over 20 calls in connection to fireworks law

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– Northern Lancaster County Police have reported responses to over 20 calls involving the new fireworks law.

Crews responded to a total of 23 calls during the July 4th holiday period in Clay, Penn, and Warwick Townships.

The new fireworks law in Pennsylvania allows consumer-grade fireworks, like roman candles and bottle rockets, to be set off.

However, concerns about noise, zoning, and damage to homes created a call for service impact on many area departments.

Besides the multitude of calls, no injuries were reported and no charges were filed.
