The exact numbers of illegal fireworks citations issued by GPD and GFD have not been tallied yet, but Parish said that night was calm.
It was a different story with LACoFD.
"We had so many calls we haven't had time to tally them yet," LACoFD Inspector and Public Information Officer Sam Padilla said on Wednesday. "No major fires but a lot of grass, tree and brush fires all over the area last night."
Padilla said a majority of the fires were started by fireworks. Many of the calls came from La Cañada Flintridge and the unincorporated areas of Montrose and La Crescenta.
"The whole department in L.A. County was busy," he said.
This rounds out a busy time for firefighters and law enforcement.
On July 1 eight fires were reported in the Angeles National Forest near La Cañada.
"That is not unusual," Stanton Florea, fire information officer for the U.S. Forest Service, said. They were small brush fires, he added.
Also on July 1 a near disaster was averted in the ANF about two-and-a-half miles from the Foothill (210) Freeway exit onto Angeles Crest Highway when Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station deputies, who just happened to be in the area on another call, saw a brush fire. They were able to extinguish the fire without assistance from the fire department. A witness reported having seen two people in the turn out shooting off fireworks, which officials suspect as the cause of the brush fire, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department arson and explosives detail Detective Gary Spencer said.
"The witness saw a car there. They launched two fireworks shells into the air, a small fire stated and they left quickly," Spencer alleges.
