The Fourth of July is over, and for many it was back to work on Monday.
During the holiday weekend, law enforcement and fire officials commented that the weekend was luckily a quiet one.
“I would like to thank the community of Arbuckle for celebrating a safe and sane Fourth of July,” said Arbuckle Fire Chief, Casey Cox, “It was a very quiet evening and although we had a few incidents we were able to pinpoint the offenders.”
The community of Arbuckle celebrated a safe and sane holiday after news that fireworks may be banned if illegal fireworks continue.
“It appeared that everyone did a great job of keeping the illegal activity down and displaying their fireworks properly,” said Cox.
After word had hit the streets that a firework ban was on the horizon, Cox commented that people expressed concern and opted to have their fireworks checked for extra measure.
Although given a passing grade this year, Cox commented that the Arbuckle Community will be under a watchful eye on the next Fourth of July.
The Williams Fire Department reported no incidents caused from fireworks through the Fourth of July holiday.
Fireworks on the Sacramento River in Colusa went without a hitch, as hundreds came out to watch the spectacular show.
Sgt. Elden Tamez of the Colusa Police Department commented that the Fourth of July holiday was pretty quiet and had no issues of concern. The department was busy along with other area law enforcement cracking down on drivers under the influence.
Assistant Sheriff, Jim Saso commented that the Colusa County Sheriffs Department had a busy weekend with dozens of calls – several of those calls fireworks related; however, no citations or confiscations were made.
