Offi- cials with the Virginia Depart- ment of Forestry responded to 25 fires that burned 638 acres. "The wet weather this fall really made the difference," said John Miller, VDOF's director of resource protection. "By the time conditions dried out to the point where we had fire activity, rain would arrive. This pattern followed virtuaUy all portions of Virginia, and helped reduce the threat of wildland fire." During the fall fire season (October 15-November 30) last year, the Commonwealth ex- perienced 67 fires that burned 304 acres. "While we are pleased that there were far fewer fires this fall than last fall, we are already looking ahead to make sure that we are ready for whatever comes our way next March and April," Miller said. "All the leaves, twigs and branches that came down during the last few weeks will dry out over the winter and become fuel for wildland fires in the spring." Miller reminds everyone that just because the "official" fall fire season has ended, it mean that wildland fires can't still occur--they can. So continue to take great care any time you use fire in or near Virginia's wood- lands. And pay special attention to the ashes from your fireplace and/or woodstove as they an retain enough heat to ignite a fire for several days. Put ashes in a metal can, slowly stir in water, and keep them in the metal can for at least three days before dumping them out.
