Both Cal Fire and California State Parks employees are out in full force collecting illegal fireworks through the weekend. Cal Fire has confiscated about 200 pounds of fireworks so far.
All types of fireworks are illegal in San Luis Obispo County.
Park rangers are concerned the illegal fireworks can start fires and endanger animals in their natural habitat.
