From Smoke Hole Canyon
Nov 14, 2013
A West Virginia fire, started over the weekend by burning brush and sustained by high winds, has spread and doubled in size overnight, from 720 acres to 1500+.
The fire is burning on North Fork Mountain in Pendleton and Grant Counties and has crossed from Smoke Hole into Germany Valley, between Seneca and Champe Rocks.
The link will take you to a map showing the closure of the NF from Eagle Rocks to Redman Road.
Although Smoke Hole Road remains open at this point, it is busy with fire crews and support vehicles, and could be closed without notice.
Franklin Gorge, which is private property, is still open... but access issues could change that, as well, soon.
