Explosive and aerial fireworks are illegal in Minnesota
The Fourth of July holiday comes every year. So does the problem with illegal fireworks, according to Hastings Police Chief Mike McMenomy.
"It is a yearly problem," McMenomy said. "It is an inconvenience for our officers to have to respond to the calls."
This year's complaints about fireworks began several weeks ago, according to the chief.
"We've had quite a few calls already," he said.
