The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office (FMO) reminds residents that effective October 1, 2020, through midnight February 14, 2021, open burning is permitted for the burning of leaves and trees, brush, yard and garden trimmings generated on-site, except where always prohibited. Note: all fires must be called into the Loudoun County Emergency Communications Center at 703-777-0637 prior to ignition and when the fire is extinguished.
If current weather conditions for open burning deem it to be a high-risk activity, additional restrictions may apply. Burning is always prohibited in urban or built up areas (i.e. subdivisions) throughout Loudoun County, the Town of Leesburg, and in town limits of Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville and Round Hill.
