DOWNIEVILLE, Calif. (KGO) -- When it comes to truly safe and sane fireworks displays, it's hard to beat the Sierra County town of Downieville
Sunday, the small town rolled out its fireworks-free Fourth of July fireworks display for the 14th consecutive year.
The sound of two large rolls of bubble wrap, being stomped on by townspeople young and old, rang loudly through the rustic downtown.
Downieville is in the heart of Tahoe National Forest, where fireworks are forbidden.
The fire danger there is just too high.
