Normandy Park is one of the few areas around Western Washington where you can still light off your own fireworks. There is one stand in the community and business has been good since it opened up.
Of course, it's legal to do them within the city limits but there's no doubt that some of the fireworks end up in other areas. Neighbors in Burien say they've seen an increase in recent years and not everyone enjoys hearing the fireworks on the holiday.
Besides the concerns over fire safety, some say it upsets their pets and it's tough on their nerves.
