KING CITY — King City Police Department will expand enforcement again this year for discharge of illegal fireworks, including increased patrol staffing and use of drones, through the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Violations will result in a $1,000 fine, which will be issued either to the person igniting the fireworks or to the property owner if the person igniting the fireworks cannot be determined.

Illegal fireworks include those that are not sold at local permitted fireworks stands or professional aerial fireworks shows.

“Please respect your neighbors by following all fireworks restrictions,” stated police. “Illegal fireworks create a serious fire threat, disrupts peace of others and creates particularly harm to pets.”

Anyone who witnesses individuals discharging illegal fireworks should report it to the non-emergency dispatch number at 831-385-8311.

  1. They are doing and have been doing illegal fireworks very close to my residence. The fireworks are on North Vanderhurst by the Senior Ctr in King City CA. I mean very close and it causes my dog to have a panic attack and other animals. My understanding is you’re suppose to be holding these people responsible. So please do something about it. It’s not fair to others and it’s breaking the LAW!!!!!
