County Lifts Burn Ban

Rockbridge County lifted its ban on all open burning last Thursday.

In a statement from Nathan Ramsey, the county’s fire-rescue chief, he said the decision had been made after careful consideration and consultation with the Virginia Department of Forestry.

“We have had sufficient rain the past few days, and additional rain is in the forecast in the next week,” he wrote.

He urged all county residents to continue to use caution when burning.
