Fireworks stirred up a quiet Sunday evening in Central Saanich last weekend

Fireworks stirred up a quiet Sunday evening in Central Saanich last weekend.

On Jan. 22 reports of the sound of gunfire and an orange and blue flash in the wood drew police attention in the 7000 block of East Saanich Road around 10 p.m.

Police wound up educating a resident who was setting off fireworks that there is a bylaw in place limiting the pyrotechnics to those with a permit from Central Saanich fire.
