Manteca Bulletin - - Local / State -

SAN FRAN­CISCO (AP) — Six peo­ple have been ar­rested in what Cal­i­for­nia au­thor­i­ties said Thurs­day was one of the largest il­le­gal fire­work op­er­a­tions in state.

Nearly 50,000 pounds (22,679.85 kilo­grams) of fire­works were seized by the Cal­i­for­nia De­part­ment of Forestry and Fire Pro­tec­tion over the past two weeks in the cul­mi­na­tion of a three­year in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Wild­fire-prone Cal­i­for­nia has some the strictest fire­works re­stric­tions in the coun­try and bans some of the most popular prod­ucts that are le­gal in other states.
