As a result of the recent rainfall and the more moderate weather forecast for the immediate future the outdoor burn ban imposed on March 15, 2018 has been rescinded.
Please take note that this action does not rescind the limitations on outdoor burning imposed by Chapter 10.1-1142 of the Code of Virginia, as amended, which restricts burning to the hours between 4:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight and imposes other restrictions on the nature and location of permissible fires. Neither does it prohibit the imposition or continuation of burning bans or regulations by agencies or organizations otherwise authorized or empowered to impose such regulations or bans.
Individuals are encouraged to use good judgment and discretion before lighting any outdoor fire and to take proper precautions to insure that the fire is controlled during the hours burning is permitted. Any fire so ignited should not be left unattended until it is completely extinguished.
Individuals having questions regarding this matter should contact the Director of Fire, Emergency Services, and Emergency Operations at (540) 955 - 5113.
