It happens every year, but the Riverton Fire Department plans for it, and sparks from Saturday night’s big fireworks show in Riverton started several brush fires on Griffey Hill.
The multiple fires were quickly extinguished.
The annual fireworks show drew, as usual, a very large gathering of vehicles along Airport Road and from vantage points all around. One enthusiasts at the Northern Arapahoe Sun Dance even reported the fireworks were visible there. “It was quite a good show,” she said.
