SALT LAKE CITY — Neighborhood fireworks were banned in Salt Lake City for the 4th of July, but the city's fire department is celebrating that no firework-related fires were reported.

High heat and extreme drought conditions made backyard fireworks particularly dangerous, as sometimes a single spark can ignite an uncontrolled fire.

Fireworks shows were held throughout the state in sanctioned areas by professional fireworks operators to help ensure public safety.
