Firefighters from the National Park Service, Virginia Department of Forestry, US Forest Service, and a Fire Department from Colorado have continued clean up operations from a fire that started on Friday, September 8th.

The two and half acre fire at Miller Head appears to have been naturally started and is fully contained.

Crews will continue to monitor the fire perimeter throughout the weekend.

You can help protect the park by completely distinguishing all fires, never building a fire in back country, and reporting any fires or smoke to park rangers.
