For years, Kentucky residents have purchased their favorite fireworks from other states. Now, because of a new state law, they can buy those fireworks locally.
Until now, it has been illegal to purchase fireworks that explode upward. But the new law states that licensed vendors in the state can now sell 1.4 category consumer fireworks.
"The new law is a change for the better," according to Bill Hall, assistant chief at Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Department.
The accompanying restrictions will be a key.
