GLEN JEAN, W.Va.


Firefighting crews are looking forward to some help from Mother Nature to contain a fire that's burning in the New River Gorge National River.

Park ranger Leah Perkowski-Sisk says the fire in the Endless Wall area of the gorge remains 90 percent contained but rain on Friday should help with hot spots. The Endless Wall trail remains closed to public use.

Crews are continuing to monitor hot spots and mop up the burn.

The fire was reported on Sunday and has burned about 130 acres.

Perkowsi-Sisk says the fire was caused by human activity and remains under investigation.
