Everyone can expect a few neighbor kids to light firecrackers on the 4th of July, but by the 7th of July, nerves may start to fray. A Davenport woman says she spent five hours cleaning her yard, deck and pool after a neighbor’s pyrotechnical exploits, and Lois Ploog says she’s fed up with the nightly noise and mess. She says after the fireworks went off, it was like a rainshower of soot and debris. Ploog says she was afraid to sit outside on her deck to enjoy the display, for fear of having some super-hot object land in her hair or eyes. Davenport police says residents who see illegal fireworks displays should call police immediately as it’s easier to charge the suspects if they’re caught in the act.
