WASHINGTON (WUSA) --  As expected, the DC Council on Tuesday defeated a measure to ban the sale of fireworks.

Mayor Adrian Fenty and Fire Chief Dennis Rubin wanted the ban passed in time for the July Fourth holiday.  They believed it would make the city safer.

The Council defeated the proposal by an 11-2 vote.
