“Everyone needs to remember that ALL fireworks are illegal in San Diego County, and for good reason. Considering the dry grass and brush in and around Escondido, anyone thinking about buying and using illegal fireworks needs to understand that negligently causing a fire can result in criminal and financial consequences.” (emphasis added)

“With the prediction of high temperatures comes warnings about high fire danger. Power tools, including lawnmowers, are not recommended in hot weather to avoid sparks that ignite grass and brush fires.
Maintain defensible fire space around homes by removing dead leaves, debris, and other flammable items that an ember can ignite.
If you do choose to cut away and remove dead and dying plants near your homes or structures, use hand tools only.
Be particularly careful with smoking materials to avoid accidentally starting a fire.
Never pull your vehicle over in the grass; it can ignite a fire. Please ensure your vehicle is well maintained, as faulty catalytic converters have been a major cause of accidental fires in San Diego County.
If you have a trailer on your vehicle, ensure the chains don’t drag on the ground while driving and spark a fire.”
