About Us image
The Lovingston Volunteer Fire Department is a 100% Volunteer Organization!!! We are also a 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization with the funds to operate coming from donations from our community, fundraisers that are hosted by the firefighters and the Ladies Auxiliary, and the budget from the County of Nelson. The fire department responds out of two stations, the main station being located in Lovingston (the County seat) and the other in Wingina.  We serve the areas of Lovingston, Shipman, Wingina, Norwood, Howardsville, Colleen, Arrington, and Tye River.  The department responds mutual aid with every fire agency in the county as well as Amherst, Buckingham and Albemarle Counties.  

We currently house a Fire Engine, Tanker, Heavy Rescue/Air & Light Utility, Quick Attack Engine, and Brush Truck at the Lovingston station; we house a two Tankers and Brush Truck at the Wingina Station.

Morse Lane Structure Fire

Morse Lane Structure Fire


ARRINGTON - The Lovingston Volunteer Fire Department responded Friday night at 7:05PM to a fire in the 600 block of Morse Lane. Units arrived to find a single-family home with heavy smoke and fire conditions coming from the structure. An aggressive attack was attempted inside the home, but crews were pulled out due to the deteriorating conditions. Wind and temperatures well below freezing made firefighting efforts difficult. The home was a total loss. There were no injuries to citizens or firefighters. The cause remains undetermined. Firefighters from Piney River Volunteer Fire Department, Faber Volunteer Fire Department, Gladstone Volunteer Fire & Rescue Service, Rockfish Valley Volunteer Fire & Rescue, Wintergreen Fire & Rescue, Montebello Volunteer Fire Department, and Amherst Fire Department assisted. Other agencies assisting included Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, Amherst County Sheriff’s Office, Gladstone EMS, and VDOT.
