As of right now, it looks like fireworks will be allowed in unincorporated areas of El Paso over the 4th of July holiday.

Every year, based on El Paso's Keetch-Byram Drought Index rating, the city decides whether or not to allow fireworks in unincorporated areas.  At this time, it doesn't look like El Paso will get a rating high enough to cause a ban. County Judge Ruben Vogt said:

because of the rain over the weekend, we will see either a very slight increase to the index or maybe even a decrease depending on how much rain we get, so I will more than likely not be issuing a disaster declaration to ban fireworks — although I will be making that official announcement Monday at Commissioners Court.” - El Paso Times

Things could change though as county commissioners have until June 25th to put a fireworks ban into place.
