LOUISA, VIRGINIA – Due to worsening drought conditions in the region, the County of Louisa is prohibiting open air burning until further notice. This prohibition applies to the burning of brush, leaves, grass, trash, debris or any other flammable material, as well as the ignition or maintenance of any open fire within the County. The prohibition does not apply to charcoal, gas or liquid-fired grills.
“We take citizen safety and the protection of property very seriously,” said Keith Greene, Chief of Fire and Emergency Services. “Responsible practices are critical to ensuring both.”
The County continues to be in regular contact with the Office of the State Fire Marshall, which supports the effort. The prohibition is in place until further notice.
