...ENHANCED THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES TODAY...

drop to between 15 and 25 percent. This combined with dry fine

Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry
grasses and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to
spread quickly.

Virginia residents are reminded that open burning is prohibited
