SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – On Thursday, Santa Fe County approved a ban on the sale and use of certain fireworks in the unincorporated and wildland areas in the county.

It consists of two parts; a proclamation of severe drought conditions in the county, and the ban of sales and use of certain fireworks including missile-type rockets, helicopters, aerial spinners, stick-type rockets, and ground audible devices.
