Virginia’s 4 p.m. Burn Law Feb 15 thru April 30
Feb 15 – Apr 30 all-day

Outdoor Fires Unlawful Before 4:00 PM

February 15 through April 30

Virginia’s 4:00 p.m. Burning Law goes into effect on February 15.

Briefly, the 4:00 p.m. Burning Law states: from February 15 through April 30 of each year, no burning before 4:00 p.m. is permitted, if the fire is in, or within’ 300 feet of, woodland, brushland or fields containing dry grass or other flammable material.

Since forest fuels cure during the winter months, the danger of fire is higher in early spring than in summer when the forest and grasses are green with new growth. The 4:00 p.m. Burning Law is an effective tool in the prevention of forest fires. Localities may have more restrictive outdoor burning laws.
You can read the full text of the law § 10.1-1142 on the VDOF website.

Debris burning continues to be the leading cause of forest fires in Virginia. The 4:00 p.m. Burning Law is different from the burning bans, which are invoked only during periods of extreme fire danger.

For more information and complete copies of the law, please contact your local VDOF office.

It gives me great pride to welcome you to the Town of Tazewell. Tazewell Virginia is located at the head waters of the Clinch River in beautiful Southwest Virginia and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, “The Peak” and the valleys that form the Clinch Valley and is the county seat of Tazewell County. The town is the gateway to both Burkes Garden and Thompson Valley communities and is an endpoint of the Back of the Dragon riding/driving highway along VA Route 16. Tazewell is home of the Tazewell High School Bulldogs and is within a short driving distance to Bluefield College and Southwest Virginia Community College. Tazewell offers its citizens and guests a wide variety of activities that enhances its quality of life such as Lincolnshire Park and Lake, a state of the art YMCA, a historical district, Crab Orchard Museum and Pioneer Park, and many summer time concerts on Main Street. Late Mayor Charles Grindstaff’s favorite quote about Tazewell was “ONCE A BULLDOG, ALWAYS A BULLDOG” which typifies the community’s ongoing efforts to blend its past history, citizen’s friendship, and lifetime love for the community into a community that makes Tazewell a special place to live and visit. Whether you a resident or a visiting guest, we hope you enjoy all that Tazewell has to offer.
