GREENFIELD — The city's annual fireworks display has been called off over concerns about dry conditions. Fire Chief Jimmy Roberts made the announcement Wednesday afternoon, hours after a red-flag fire warning was issued for Hancock County. The red-flag warning means conditions are ideal for fires amid dry vegetation. The county — and most of the state — is in its fourth week without rain. In fact, it's likely this month will go down as the driest June in state history.
More information about the decision will be available. You can read more about it in the print edition of the Daily Reporter on Thursday.
