Foresters in Virginia are asking residents to be careful when burning outdoors during the state's fall wild land fire season.

The fire season begins October 15th and continues through November 30th. Late this week Virginia's division of forestry said 865 wildland fires have burned nearly 7,000 acres of privately-owned land this year.
