Fireworks on sale in Texas, but banned in Houston

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Fireworks are now on sale in Texas.

Vendors said drought conditions have improved enough for most fireworks restrictions to be lifted.

Last year, many parts of the state banned the sale of fireworks because of the extremely dry conditions.

Fireworks are still banned in Houston and parts of Harris County.
