Last Updated: 159 days ago
The Kern County Fire Department has been swamped with calls all night long about illegal fireworks and fires.
They're trying to catch up but at last check had a back log of about 70 calls.
They want to remind people not to call 911 in order to file a report.
Instead you should call the Kern County Fire Hotline at 838-6070 and they will be working until 2 a.m. trying to address every complaint.
