Prescribed Burn Schedule


The New River Gorge National River Fire Managers are preparing for several prescribed fires this spring.
The prescribed burns are scheduled between February 25 and May 31, weather permitting.
Current plans are to burn four separate units ranging in size from five to 45 acres for a total of 93 acres.
Fuel and weather conditions must fall within certain burn plan parameters and will determine the exact dates of the prescribed burns.
During the Sandstone prescribed fire smoke will be visible from Interstate 64 and the Sandstone Visitor Center will be temporarily closed for a few hours to ensure public, staff, and firefighter safety.
