The Fourth of July is just days away and that has Cal Fire crews on high alert.
Firefighters from outside the area will be joining local crews this weekend to make sure people stay safe.
"Safe and Sane" fireworks are only allowed in certain areas, and residents must us them in the same city or district where they were purchased.
Those fireworks have the Fire Marshall's Seal and they do not leave the ground.
People who break the rules could face a hefty fine.
"If it's a safe and sane firework most likely we're going to confiscate it," said Chad Zrelak, a captain with Cal Fire. "If it's a dangerous firework, that individual will be cited and the fine can be as much as $2,000."
Just as a reminder, in San Luis Obispo County "Safe and Sane" fireworks are only allowed in San Miguel, Templeton, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach and Oceano.
In Santa Barbara County, they can be bought and used in Santa Maria and Guadalupe.
