Charlotte Seeks Fireworks Violators
Members of the Charlotte, N. C., Fire Department will make a canvass of the city for stored fireworks, and anyone found possessing explosives or fireworks of any description will be subpoenaed for violation of the city ordinance forbidding such possession, says Fire Chief Hendrix Palmer. The department has been informed that fireworks are being stored in Charlotte in anticipation of Christmas trade.
“It is natural to assume,” Chief Palmer said, “that we cannot go to every possible place where fireworks might be kept. We are, however, going to make regular inspection tours and bring charges against those persons possessing firecrackers or explosives.”
