A camp re should be contained to a 2-foot by 2-foot by2-foot area; this can be in ground, on ground, or in a free-standing pre-manufactured replace.The recent rainfall received over the past week has improved the dryconditions in the County that previously worried  re of cials causing aburning ban on camp res to be issued on July 6, 2010. The camp re banwas in addition to the previously issued VDEQ ban on all open air burning inplace until October 1.Several years ago, the VDEQ established the Western Virginia EmissionsControl Area, which includes Roanoke County and town of Vinton,Botetourt County, Frederick County, Roanoke City, Salem City andWinchester City. Each year burning is prohibited in the Western VirginiaEmissions Control Areas during the months of May, June, July, Augustand September.
