WYTHE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Residents in one local county can snag free fire wood, they just have to do a bit of hard work.

Wythe County invites residents to remove downed trees for firewood in Progress Park.

The specific area where residents can cut downed trees is on Kents Lane across from the AEP substation, where trees were previously cut for construction of an AEP high voltage line, according to a county statement.

The gate access to this area is found a quarter-mile southeast of the intersection of Gator and Kents Lanes along the Kents Lane Road, an email from the county said.

Anyone interested in cutting firewood must obtain a signed hold harmless agreement and site map from the County Administration Building, located at 340 South 6th St. in Wytheville.

Participants must have a copy with them when cutting firewood at the designated site.

“Failure to do so will result in a request to leave,” according to the county.
