The Lansing State Journal and WILX-TV reported the Fourth of July celebration for Ingham County's Meridian Township was planned for dusk today near the township hall. A new date hasn't been set.

Meridian Township Fire Inspector Mark Hornberger said it's "just too dry," adding that: "Everything is crispy out there."

WILX also reported Tuesday night's fireworks in Williamston were postponed due to dry conditions.

Across the country, state and local governments are calling off annual fireworks displays out of fear that a stray rocket could ignite fires. And in Michigan, officials are urging people to use caution with fireworks and outdoor fires as some areas face what's described as dangerously dry conditions.
