LURAY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Shenandoah National Park reinstituted fire restrictions on Friday.

This comes just days after it lifted a complete fire ban that had been put in place last week due to very dry weather conditions and high winds.

The previous ban was lifted on Wednesday after the Rocky Branch fire was declared fully contained and the area had received a little rain.

That fire burned 1,031 acres between March 20 and 27 and closed part of Skyline Drive and the Appalachian Trail for days.

However, the recent rainfall was not much, and conditions have once again become very dry.

In the last week, the national park has received about 1.5 inches of rain, but most of that fell several days ago. Since then, it has been much drier, with the park getting just 0.2 inches of rain in the last three days.

Combine that with lower humidity levels, and it does not take long to dry out.

Additionally, the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the higher elevations along the Blue Ridge and the Shenandoah Valley through 8 p.m. Friday.

Wind gusts of up to 55 miles per hour are possible.

Under these new fire restrictions, building, attending, maintaining or using an open fire anywhere within the park's boundaries is prohibited. However, camp stoves can be used.
