Lost River Gorge Fire Closes Appalachian Trail


Officials say the Lost River Gorge and Boulder Cliffs in New Hampshire are closed.
This comes as crews continue fighting a wildfire for a third day.  
Forest and land officials say the fire near the Lost River Gorge has grown to about 70 acres.
More than 70 responders were working to put it out Thursday.
The cause is still under investigation.
The Woodstock Fire Chief did receive a report of a meteor sighting the night before the fire started.
That claim hasn’t been followed up on.
Parts of the Appalachian Trail will also be closed for the weekend.
