COLERAIN, OH (FOX19) -
In Colerain, they are keeping a close eye on Mother Nature as they look forward to their Saturday fireworks show.
Event organizers are confident the show will go on, but fire officials are watching the conditions just in case conditions become dangerously dry.
"If the wind, rain, or the dry conditions play a factor we'll be the bad guy, we'll say no," Colerain Assistant Fire Chief Rick Niehaus said.
Rich Niehaus says they are doing everything they can keep Saturday's show on track.
"You can tell there has been help watering," Niehaus said pointing out over the hill where the fireworks will be viewed. "The farther out in the field where the viewers will be sitting it's pretty dry. It has been cut pretty close the ground to minimize any vegetation from actually catching fire and spreading."
Niehaus's biggest concern is the wooded area near where the high-flying fireworks will be set off.
"Depending on the wind direction which is usually out of the west, it's going to carry the debris off to behind me," Niehaus said. "It's a wooded area that leads over to a subdivision."
He says it is not the trees he is worried about, but the dry ground underneath.
Niehaus says he is optimistic that plenty of watering in the wooded area will allow the fireworks show to go on.
Burn bans have been ordered for Dearborn County in Indiana and for Kenton County in Kentucky due to the lack of rain and high temperatures.
Shuttles will be available from Northgate Mall and Colerain Middle School beginning at 8 p.m.
