PITTSBURG (KRON) — Three people are in custody after a raid on illegal fireworks operators in Contra Costa County.
Pittsburg police and Contra Costa County Fire District officials say they made the arrests and confiscated more than a ton of illegal firecrackers.
A photo firefighters tweeted shows boxes filled with the fireworks in a warehouse after the seizure.
Dry conditions and the regional drought are making fireworks enforcement even more of a priority for local law agencies this year.
