Petaluma fireworks show in jeopardy

Petaluma's fairgrounds fireworks show struggled for funding the past three years before last-minute donors came forward to save it. But it isn't money that apparently has done in the popular July Fourth celebration.

It's space.

The traditional "fallout area" where debris from spent fireworks could land safely is now a construction zone as part of the new East Washington Place shopping center next to the fairgounds.

That means there aren't any vacant lots or ball fields to provide a safe buffer for people and cars.
