Bexar County Commissioners Court has banned the sale of "restricted" fireworks through January 14, KSAT reports.



Fire Marshal Chris Lopez's proposal states that the normal danger of fire is "greatly enhanced by extremely dry conditions." San Antonio's drought level currently stands at extreme to severe.

Banned fireworks include "skyrockets with sticks" and "missiles with fins" as classified under state law, the station reports.
