Trail Re-opens in Virginia; Fire Still Burns

WDBJ television in Roanoke, VA (channel 7) has a news report on 11 July 2007 about the forest fire in the James River Face Wilderness area that has charred hundreds of acres and had closed the Appalachian Trail. They report under the headline "Forest fire expected to regain strength; Appalachian Trail reopens" that rain on 10 July had temporarily slowed the fire and also that
"The Appalachian Trail is open once again to hikers, but shuttles are standing by to transport them around the area should the fire spread."
The web site has a link to their video of the story.
