RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Department of Agriculture’s Wildland Fire Division says citizens should be very cautious lighting off fireworks in areas of South Dakota where conditions are dry.

Fireworks sales in South Dakota are legal until July 5, and they can be shot off through July 10.

Officials are reminding people not to use fireworks in an area where a fire could ignite and to have water nearby to put out a potential fire.

Jim Strain, deputy director of South Dakota Wildland Fire, says a small spark could set off a wildfire.

Fireworks are banned in the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District.
