... Fall fire season begins today in West Virginia...

Today, October 1st, Marks the beginning of the fall fire season
for the state of West Virginia. During the time period from
October 1st through December 31st, West Virginia law prohibits
outdoor burning between the hours of 7am and 5pm. This is
particularly important on elevated fire danger days, or when the

and dry grasses combined with often warm, dry, and windy weather
to create hazardous conditions for wildfires.
