Open Burning Restricted in Loudoun County: February 15 - April 30

Open Burning Restricted in Loudoun County: February 15 - April 30

From Loudoun County (VA) --- The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office is reminding citizens that open burning is restricted in Loudoun County between February 15 and April 30. The regulations, which prohibit open air fires between the hours of midnight and 4:00 p.m., are enforced by the Virginia Department of Forestry and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal. Known as the 4:00 p.m. law, these restrictions are in place due to the potential for rapid fire spread across woodland and grassland areas that is the result of dry outdoor fuels, high winds and temperature increases that are normally present in the late winter and early spring seasons.
