Contra Costa Seizes More than a Ton of Illegal Fireworks


PITTSBURG (KRON) — Three people are in custody after a raid on illegal fireworks operators in Contra Costa County.

Pittsburg police and Contra Costa County Fire District officials say they made the arrests and confiscated more than a ton of illegal firecrackers.

A photo firefighters tweeted shows boxes filled with the fireworks in a warehouse after the seizure.

Dry conditions and the regional drought are making fireworks enforcement even more of a priority for local law agencies this year.
