Fireworks are again to blame for starting a fire in Jefferson County.
A 16-year-old boy got a ticket today after a firework he set off started a small grass fire at a private residence. Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze quickly and no property was damaged.
The ticket was for fourth degree arson and the teen will now have to appear before a judge.
Fireworks are also believed to have started a wildfire north of Golden last week, a blaze that destroyed a shed and came dangerously close to some homes. Investigators are expected to decide this week whether the three juveniles who allegedly used the fireworks should face criminal charges.
