(WWBT) - The Virginia Department of Forestry has issued a burn warning due to the weather conditions.

While the warmer weather means it's a good time for camping and other outdoor activities, the dry air and strong winds mean it's also a good time for fires to quickly get out of control.

Thursday's outdoor fire danger is considered critical. The Forestry Department said all outdoor burning should be delayed.
