PORTLAND, Ore (KOIN) — The pandemic is still gripping the country, but it’s also coming up to the 4th of July — and fireworks are going on sale.

Many cities and regions have cancelled 4th of July fireworks events — including Portland. In Vancouver, fireworks are banned within the city limits.

But residents can use fireworks in unincorporated Clark County only on July 4 and only between 9 a.m. and midnight.
