High winds and some of the first drying conditions we’ve had in months combined to create the perfect recipe for area brush fires this past weekend. The biggest was in the Faber area along Laurel Road on Saturday. A large number of fire departments responded to the call that took much of the day to finally bring under control.

Later Saturday crews from the Piney River area responded to another smaller brush fire in Roseland at the Blue Haven B & B. A fire there got out of control and spread into the nearby woods. Fire crews arrived and quickly got the fire out. March 30, 2019.

A reminder. There is a statewide burn ban that remains in effect daily until 4 PM. The ban runs until the end of April. More from the Virginia Department of Forestry by clicking here.
