Indiana Law Limits When, Where Fireworks Can be Used

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana Fire Marshal Jim Greeson is reminding state residents about when and where fireworks can be legally used.

Indiana law specifies fireworks can be used from 9 a.m. until two hours after sunset from Monday until Friday, from 9 a.m. to midnight on July Fourth and from 9 a.m. until two hours after sunset July 5 through July 9.

Fireworks can be used legally on the user's property, on the property of someone who has given permission and at a special fireworks discharge location approved by local authorities. 

Using fireworks at any other location could result in a fine of $500 per infraction. Even if places where regulations are followed, damaging someone else's property with fireworks could result in a fine of $5,000 and one a year in prison.
