WICHITA, Kansas – One week before the 4th of July and today, fireworks stands across the state begin sales.

Stands can sell fireworks between 6 a.m. and midnight, but with the hot, dry and windy weather we’ve had, fire officials are reminding citizens about the rules.

Last year, there were 58 fireworks-related fires that did more than $200,000 in damage and in the City of Wichita.

Now, authorities are laying down the law on what’s allowed and what’s not.

Most importantly, they say shoot off fireworks where you buy them.

The city has strict rules on what can be bought and shot off inside city limits.

Nothing can go over six feet.

All fireworks sold inside city limits comply with that rule.

Fireworks can be sold through July 5th. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
