West Virginia Division of Forestry has issued a burn notice for most of the central and southern part of the Mountain State.

The warning comes with an increase of forest fires in the region.

At least one fire was reported at 3 p.m. yesterday in Calhoun, near the Gilmer County line along US 33-119.

The Arnoldsburg and Upper West Fork VFD's responded, including a call to a re-kindle last night at 9 p.m.

Dry air and warming temperatures will continue to impact the region through Tuesday afternoon.

DNR says open burning of any type is considered very dangerous at this time as well as the potential for sparks while operating equipment and smoking.
