The LAPD has issued new warnings to prevent illegal firework activity during July 4th weekend. LAFD Capt. Erik Scott says the hillsides are ripped for wildfire due to drought.
Officials say some parts of the San Fernando Valley are high-risk fire zones. LAPD Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton says they will be citing and arresting people who are in possession of illegal fireworks – especially in areas that are at high risk for fire.
