County of Louisa, VA: Outdoor Fires Unlawful Before 4 p.m.

Fred Turck, VDOF forest protection coordinator, said, "The leading cause of forest fires in Virginia is carelessness. An unattended fire, a discarded cigarette or a single match can ignite the dry fuels that are so prevalent in the early spring. Add a few days of dry, windy conditions and an escaped wildfire can quickly turn into a raging blaze.
"People living in most rural areas of Virginia are especially at risk," said Turck.

Even with isolated thunderstorms, many areas of the state have experienced below-average rainfall and scorching temperatures, resulting in dry brush and grass. “One spark is all it would take for a wildfire to start,†said Fred Turck, assistant director for wildfire prevention and education with the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF). “Fireworks that have finished burning are still extremely hot, and they can smolder in dry grass or leaves before a fire ignites.†Turck recommends keeping a bucket of water; wet towel and a fully-charged garden hose nearby.

FRED TURK WITH THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF FORESTRY SAYS THAT THE REASON THAT YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO BURN BEFORE THEN IS BECAUSE THAT'S WHEN THE WINDS ARE USUALLY THE STRONGEST. TURK SAYS THAT THE SPRING FIRE SEASON CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS--WITH THE EXAMPLE OF JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WHEN DRY, WINDY CONDITIONS LED TO BRUSH FIRES IN ALL BUT 3 COUNTIES IN FEBRUARY OF 20-11. IF YOU ARE CAUGHT BURNING BEFORE 4 P-M, YOU COULD FACE A FINE OF UP TO 500-DOLLARS PLUS COURT COSTS. EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO BURN AFTER 4, YOU STILL HAVE TO BE CAREFUL TO MAKE SURE YOUR FIRE DOESN'T ESCAPE AND CAUSE DAMAGE--BECAUSE YOU COULD BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLEANUP COSTS. THE SPRING FIRE SEASON LASTS UNTIL APRIL 30TH.

"Firefighting is a dangerous practice best left to trained professionals," said Fred X. Turck, VDOF's assistant director for resource protection. "When an individual without this training faces a fire escaping in front of them, they may panic and make decisions that increase the risk to themselves and their property. Turck adds that you should always call 911 as soon as a fire gets away from you - don't try to be a hero by trying to contain the fire by yourself.
