LETTER TO THE EDITOR: RE: fire safety

To the editor:
We experienced a serious fire threat to our neighborhood last night and I did not know where to call for information or help. Actually this situation may still be a future threat. The problem is: one neighbor’s lack of concern for fire safety. (NAME/ADDRESS: Lee, 11449 5th Avenue South – middle house on short street). He was shooting off fireworks (for 2-3 hours) that burst just above the treetops above our yard spraying lighted particles in all directions. We could hear the crackle and feel the ashes as they landed on our skin. Even if this was “not illegal” - as they claimed - there certainly was a high risk of setting extremely dry bushes, trees, grass and houses on fire in our densely populated neighborhood. The neighbor, Mr. Lee and his wife, dismissed my concerns when I expressed my safety fears to them.
