Firefighters urge extreme caution when using fireworks

Firefighters urge extreme caution when using fireworks


SACRAMENTO - The Sacramento area has seen an average of one serious fire a day in recent weeks. And when fireworks go on sale at noon on Saturday, fire agencies start their busiest week of the fire season.

"We're seeing fires daily," Sacramento Metro Fire spokesperson Michelle Eidam said. "We all know that, so what we want people to hear clearly is, enjoy the fireworks but be really, really smart about them."

Eidam points out that safe and sane fireworks are illegal for anyone under 18 to use.

"Because of the fire danger. There's a million reasons, but that's a hard and fast rule," Eidam said. "Parents will be cited, parents can be cited."

Eidam said safe and sane fireworks should never be modified and or used more than one at a time. Fireworks that are not safe and sane are easily recognized, she said.

'Sexy felon' doesn't want to be seen in jailhouse orange


Jeremy Meeks' attorneys tried their best Friday to ensure that the media didn't get a shot of the 'sexy felon' in handcuffs and jailhouse orange garb.

Defense attorneys stood between reporters and Meeks when he appeared in court in Stockton for further arraignment. They later argued that requiring their client to wear jailhouse orange in court - as he did Friday morning - would bias a jury against him.

"My client should be allowed to wear civilian clothing," Meeks' attorney Tai Bogan said.

Meeks is being held in San Joaquin County Jail on $1.1 million bail. He was arrested June 19 in weapons charges during a sweep in the Weston Ranch area of Stockton; he has told News10 that he was a gang member and that he had a gun in the trunk of his car when he was arrested.

Stockton twins with rare genetic disorder born without eyes


STOCKTON - Friends and family are looking to lend an extra hand to a Stockton couple juggling three children and newborn twins with special needs.

Twins Jackson and Jameson Lopez are going to be two months old next week. Both were born with a rare genetic condition called anophthalmia, which means they were born without their left eyes. Jackson, the oldest, was also born with an underdeveloped eye, or microthalmia, -- meaning he is completely blind. Jameson can see out of his right eye, but has a club foot.

The twins may have some tough challenges ahead of them, but the boys -- sporting superhero onesies -- and their family are taking it one day at a time.

Parents Summer Hollingsworth and Michael Lopez said the sonograms showed two perfectly healthy infant boys. They never knew there was anything wrong until days after the boys were born.
