Fireworks booth

Many nonprofit groups are selling legal "Safe and Sane' fireworks at booths at various locations throughout Fontana until July 5.  Pictured above are volunteers from Resurrection Academy, the only Catholic school in Fontana, at their booth on Sierra Avenue, just north of Foothill Boulevard.

Let the buying begin.

Legal "Safe and Sane" fireworks are now available for purchase in Fontana in anticipation of the Fourth of July.

Many nonprofit groups throughout the city have set up booths to sell these fireworks in order to raise funds for their projects.

Safe and Sane fireworks can be purchased from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily through July 5.

These fireworks can only be used between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. on the days in which these fireworks are sold, the Fontana Police Department said.

No fireworks are allowed to be used at any time in the area north of Summit Avenue in Fontana because of the fire danger.

Police are continuing to crack down on the illegal fireworks which have been brought into the city. The illegal fireworks are dangerous and a fire hazard, police said.

No fireworks are permitted in the unincorporated San Bernardino County area of Fontana.
