A spokesman for the Cheyenne Police Department is reminding residents that fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Cheyenne.

Officer Dan Long says violators face a $200 fine, and says police patrols will once again this year be out in force on July 4th. He also urges anyone who knows of illegal fireworks use to contact police immediately.

A free public fireworks display will be presented again this year at Frontier Park.
