Personal fireworks shows from boats risky

Some people around Door and Kewaunee counties will host their own July 4th  fireworks show, however boating enthusiasts say don't launch them on the water.   The BoatUS Foundation says while some communities have canceled their pyrotechnic shows because of COVID-19, boats on lakes and rivers are not a good platform to launch skyrockets. Door County Sheriff's Department Sgt/Investigator Jason Stenzel, who's a member of the marine patrol, says boaters who shoot off fireworks while afloat are needlessly putting themselves and others at risk of injury.



Stenzel also reminds people that setting off fireworks that leave the ground or explode without a permit is also illegal.
