Some Panhandle Area Ban Firework

Dry conditions are putting a damper on plans for the 4th of July in some parts of the sunshine state.

Four counties in the Florida panhandle have banned any outdoor burning, including the use of personal fireworks.

Fireworks displays by licensed, permitted companies will still be allowed.

Virtually all fireworks, except for sparklers, are already banned from sale or use in Florida.

More than 50 wild-fires have scorched over than 2,500 acres across the state in recent weeks.

No counties in Alabama or Georgia have burn bans in place affecting personal fireworks.
