MOORE, Oklahoma -- Moore police do not want to ruin residents' Fourth of July fun, but they are cracking down on people shooting off fireworks.

Sergeant Jeremy Lewis says officers are staying busy on fireworks calls. Police ticketed citizens Sunday night for starting a fire behind the KOMA building on S.W. 4th Street.

The fire burned part of Crysta Wilson's backyard wood fence. She says the Moore Fire Department warned her about the fire around 9 p.m. Sunday. She says she was ready to leave her house with her dogs if the fire continued to spread.

The fire department put the out the fire and Wilson helped put out hot spots with her water hose. Wilson says she's angry at the people who started the fire and ignored the burn ban.

Fireworks are illegal in Moore. Police are writing $249 tickets to those who ignore the city ordinance. Sergeant Lewis says in previous years, officers would let people off with a warning. But because Cleveland County is under a burn ban, police are not letting anyone off easy.
