Amid a days-long heat wave and tinder dry conditions, authorities across the tri-city region are warning residents to be extra vigilant this Fourth of July holiday. Local authorities say no fireworks are safe and sparklers, which can reach temperatures of more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, can still be dangerous and result in severe burns or spark fires. Fireworks are illegal in Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and all unincorporated areas of Los Angeles, and authorities this week asked residents to notify public safety officials if they see any out of the ordinary.

BURBANK — Thousands crammed into the Starlight Bowl for a set of Fourth of July performances and a fireworks spectacular Saturday funded by the city, even as it has struggled to cut costs during the recession. Children danced between picnic baskets and lawn chairs in the hill above the sold out venue, while grown-ups sipped wine and took in the sounds of the Burbank Philharmonic. As the three-hour event came to a close, the bowl’s lights were shut off and the crowd of more than 4,000 turned their gazes — and cameras — skyward for a $25,000 pyrotechnics show.
