Update on Green Creek Road Fire
4/13/2018

The Green Creek Road fire is fully contained. The final size is estimated to be approximately 300 acres. The Virginia Department of Forestry is on scene working with local units to address any remaining hot spots. The evacuation of the area has been lifted. No injuries occurred as a result of this fire.

The community is advised to be vigilant – weather conditions remain favorable for fires and Albemarle/Charlottesville remains under a Fire Weather Watch. The dry condition and high winds make the potential for rapid fire spread possible, and can turn a small fire into a large one quickly.

Today: Sunny, with a high near 82. South wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 54. South wind 9 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph
Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 79. South wind 9 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph
