NWS warns of enhanced fire risk in VA.
The National Weather Service warns that low humidity and high winds of gust up to 30 miles per hour over the last couple of days will enhance fire risk.
Fires have been reported in several areas of Virginia over the last couple of days with many pushed by the current conditions.
Caution is advised when handling any machinery and be sure to properly dispose of any smoking materials.
The current conditions enhance the risk of a fire making it hard to control and difficult to contain.
Burn laws in Virginia remain in effect until Apr. 30.
Until then outdoor fires before 4 p.m. are discouraged.
