Fire Lanterns-ILLEGAL

Per the Geneva-on-the-Lake Police Department…

Fire lanterns are illegal… We realize they look cool and it’s fun to light them up, however, they pose a serious threat, especially in a small town with several buildings. The lanterns catch on rooftops, trees, and in power lines, posing a serious threat to the community.

For additional police safety information and department news, please visit their Facebook page.
