Mustang Fire Department officials confirmed Tuesday dates it is legal to shoot personal fireworks within Mustang city limits. Fireworks are allowed from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m. through July 3; they are also allowed between 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. the July 4 holiday.

City officials on Tuesday asked residents and those who visit Mustang to set off fireworks to please be considerate of others and pick up firework trash and debris, both at personal residences and in city parks.

“All we ask is that everyone leave things as they found them and remember their neighbors when policing for the trash left over after the celebration,” Mayor Jay Adams said.

Officials with Oklahoma City Fire Department said fireworks are illegal to buy, sell, own or set off in Oklahoma City limits without a permit, which is only issued to “professional” firms and fire departments. Anyone convicted of violating the law could incur a fine of up to $302, plus court costs, as well as confiscation of fireworks, officials said.
