Wildfire Season Could Be Worst In Years

(Richmond)- The State Forestry Department is preparing for what could be one of the worst fire seasons in years. The fall wildfire season officially began in the state this week, and lasts until the end of November. Below average rainfall and dry weather conditions have contributed to increased risks. Residents are urged not to burn debris on windy days. More than 30 localities have put burn bans in place across the commonwealth.
