Fireworks the Source of Loud Booms in Ferndale Sunday Night
Residents reported hearing three loud booms around 8:30 p.m.
Fireworks in Geary Park were the cause of three loud booms heard around town on Sunday night, Ferndale Police confirmed via Twitter.
A resident posted on Ferndale Patch's Facebook page about the noises, which occurred around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Many readers responded saying they also heard the booms.
Ferndale Police posted this on their Twitter page: "A resident in the area of Geary Park reports seeing subjects ignite large, extremely loud fireworks in the park. No hazard."
Ferndale Police note in a subsequent tweet that fireworks are legal Sunday, Monday and Tuesday because of the Presidents' Day holiday on Monday.
Under the state's new fireworks law, residents can ignite, discharge and use consumer fireworks the day before, day of and day after a national holiday.
