RIDGE FARM -- The village community in Vermilion County is one of several banning fireworks. Workers posted signs and fliers around town Tuesday.

Leaders want people to follow the rules to keep accidents from happening. There will also be extra police officers on patrol, so if you're caught lighting fireworks, expect a ticket.

Other towns canceling fireworks include Paris, Monticello, Tuscola, Villa Grove, Bement, Fisher and Pontiac.
