RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia's fall fire season is being extended until Dec. 10 because of dry conditions.

John Miller with the Department of Forestry says the agency doesn't expect a significant break in the rainfall pattern.

Conditions will be evaluated weekly to determine whether additional extensions are needed.

The fall fire season was scheduled to end Nov. 30.

The Department of Forestry says 73 fires burned 1,133 acres in November.
