Hundreds of fireworks complaints, but one citation?

Illegal fireworks were visible high above many Wichita neighborhoods over the July Fourth period, as hundreds of complaints were called in and an estimated $210,000 in related property damage occurred. Given all that, it was laughable to learn that only one person received a fireworks citation – though surely not laughable for the business owner, who could end up paying a fine and court costs. Wichita fire crews work hard over the holiday, but Wichita’s fireworks ordinance isn’t working.
