ST. LOUIS (KMOX)- The Fourth of July celebration will not have fireworks this year in some areas across the region.

The extreme heat is causing the St. Louis region to be very dry, making it dangerous to shoot off fireworks.

Below is a list of places that have canceled their Fourth of July fireworks display:



Columbia, Ill.




Farmington, Mo.
