The Fourth of July is synonymous with a lot of things.
There are the colors red, white, and blue, images of Uncle Sam, parades and cookouts, America's forefathers and the country's veterans.
But, maybe beyond all of those, probably the things that make us most think of the Fourth of July are fireworks. (Sorry John Adams!)
So, with that in mind, on the fourth of July, and as the sunset, one might expect to hear a celebration of freedom in the form of fireworks, right?
Well, not everyone... some residents weren't having it.
Between 5:22 p.m. (which I admit is a little early for fireworks) and 10:57 p.m., the Danville Police responded to 13 reports of fireworks disturbances, according to the police log.
Examining these calls, it appears that they were reported and the responding officer was unable to locate the exact origin of the fireworks. Furthermore, no arrests or citations were made as a result of fireworks during this period of time.
Here is a breakdown of the calls placed to Danville Police that reported fireworks disturbances. The location is where the call originated:
