Igniting sparks in the dark
Local residents are likely to hear some popping sounds in the next few days as many celebrate the New Year by shooting fireworks.
However, within the municipal limits of Simsboro and Ruston, there should be quiet, as the shooting of fireworks is prohibited.
Ruston Police Department Capt. Tim Parker said the office typically receives a few calls reporting the illegal shooting of fireworks for a couple of days leading up to New Year’s and afterwards.
