What’s that smell west of Washington, D.C.? Forest fires burning near Skyline Drive and Front Royal - Capital Weather Gang - The Washington Post


Several Twitter followers this morning noticed the scent of smoke and burning wood in the air in Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William and Montgomery counties as well as the District. The cause is most likely two forest fires burning to the west and southwest: near Front Royal and Shenandoah National Park.

The Luray Page Free Press reports one of the blazes, called the Neighbor Mountain Fire, is about 250 acres in size and may have been sparked by a lightning strike over the weekend. It provides these additional details:

There are 30 people on the fire now with additional resources being ordered up and will be in place tomorrow. The Virginia Department of Forestry will be concentrating suppression efforts along Rt 612 where numerous homes and a church is in the area. [On Wednesday] the fire [was] approximately 3/4 a mile from these structures

Smoke from the blaze can be viewed from the Pinnacles webcam in Shenandoah National Park.

The Neighbor Mountain Fire is one of two burning in Virginia. The second, the Point 2 Wildland Fire - is burning on Massanutten mountain southwest of Front Royal. NVDaily.com said it is about 181 acres and 5 percent contained.

Weather conditions have been favorable for wildfires over the last several days with low humidity, and gusty winds at times. As humidity rises over the next few days, the fire risk should diminish.

Bring Marshmallows and sticks.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
