Countywide burn ban lifted

UPDATE: Due to recent rain, the burn ban has been lifted. Please remember to continue using safety precautions when burning materials. 


Due to the current severe dry conditions throughout Montgomery County, local fire departments, the Virginia Department of Forestry and Montgomery County Emergency Services announce a countywide burn ban until substantial rain has fallen throughout the county. This ban includes leaves, limbs, bonfires and other outdoor burning.

Failure to comply with this ban is a class three misdemeanor, and violators will be issued a summons. Furthermore, the violator may be held liable for damages caused by willfully violating this ban.
