Sales of fireworks begin in Montana



Helena, Montana – In Montana, sales of fireworks for the Fourth of July began on Saturday, June 24.

The family-run Bomber Brothers Pyrotechnics has been selling pyrotechnics for more than ten years, and co-owner Bill Fields always looks forward to the start of the season.

“This is our 14th year selling fireworks here in Helena. We started out at the Grub Stake, and now the stands actually are our kids in the stands, because now they’re old enough to sell the fireworks too,” said Fields.

Fields never get tired of seeing satisfied customers and selling fireworks with friends and family.

“When people come in and get their fireworks, it’s, you know, it’s not something you buy begrudgingly, you know? I mean, it’s a fun thing to do. It doesn’t get old selling fireworks to people when they’re having fun with it,” said Fields.

Keep in mind that it’s often prohibited to set off fireworks when doing so.

It is forbidden to set off fireworks in the city of Helena as well as on public properties like BLM and Forest Service lands.

Brent Colbert, the undersheriff for Lewis and Clark County, declared that fireworks were not permitted inside the city limits.

On private land in the county, fireworks are permitted, but only for a few days around July Fourth.

Although fireworks are entertaining, Colbert cautions everyone to exercise caution around them since they can be harmful.

“Common sense, make sure you’re sober when you fire off fireworks and make sure you’re in a safe spot and be respectful towards your neighbors and others when you’re doing it,” said Colbert.
