Marysville saw a reduction in fireworks-related property damage and injuries in 2017, the first year of a citywide fireworks ban. The Marysville Fire District did not respond to a single fireworks-related injury call within city limits during the 2017 July 4th holiday. Marysville residents are again reminded that all fireworks are illegal. The fine for discharging consumer fireworks in the city will increase this year to $257, as previously announced.
