Statewide outdoor burning restrictions¬†began over the weekend, and they will last until April 30th. The Virginia Department of Forestry is highlighting a ban on the outdoor burning of trash or debris before 4 p.m. in most instances.¬† You can’t start that type of fire within 300 feet of woodland, brush, or fields that include dry grass or other flammable materials. A violator can get hit with a $500 fine. Anyone who’s convicted of letting an illegal fire go on a rampage can be charged with the cost of fighting it, and must pay for any property damage.
