(Before It's News)

I just saw this now, but the Great Smoky Mountains National Park announced on their Facebook page yesterday that a firefighting crew continues to monitor the 0.25 acre wildfire burning near the summit of the Chimney Tops Trail. The fire currently remains within the containment area established by the crew yesterday. Trails are expected to remain closed through Tuesday, November 15th.

Closed trails include: Chimney Tops Trail, Sugarland Mountain Trail, Huskey Gap Trail, and Road Prong Trail. The ground fire continues to produce a significant amount of smoke, but is primarily burning in the duff layer with flame lengths less than 12 inches. The cause of the fire remains unknown.
