The Utah Legislature voted for the new "cake" fireworks because they go up hot but come down cool.
They have a stable base so they don't fall over. They were backed by several fire marshals.
We now have at least two fires started by illegal fireworks. One in Ogden started a bush fire and one in South Jordan took out a garage and burned two people. The fire for Red Butte canyon was caused by a campfire.
So the question: Why do people in Utah still buy and use the illegal fireworks?
