Several communities throughout the state of Utah have enacted fireworks restrictions, including several in and around Cache Valley. Fireworks have also been banned in all unincorporated private and state lands within <a href=”https://firemarshal.utah.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2015/04/Signed-Restriction-Order-2017-Box-Elder-Rich-and-Weber-Counties.pdf” target=”_blank”>Box Elder, Rich and Weber counties</a>.
