According to a news release issued by the ATF’s Denver Field Division, sometime between Sept. 1-20, a significant amount of commercial fireworks owned by the city were stolen from a storage container in Hurricane.

“Commercial-grade fireworks are explosives, and if not stored in the proper conditions, are unstable and dangerous,” ATF Special Agent in Charge Debbie Livingston said in the news release.

“It is imperative that anyone with information come forward and help us find those responsible,” Livingston said.
