High winds, dry conditions and low humidity in the Roanoke Valley are cited as the reason for implementing the ban.

Fire Officials warn that improperly disposing of smoking materials can cause a fire. All smoking materials should be disposed of in proper containers. Throwing cigarette butts out of a car window or down on the ground can likely cause a fire, especially with the current conditions we are experiencing.
