Road to North Rim Reopens After Wildfire

From Times Wire Reports

A steady stream of tourists drove into the Grand Canyon’s North Rim for the July Fourth holiday as a road closure prompted by a 58,600-acre wildfire was lifted.

The North Rim and U.S. Highway 67, the only paved route leading to the remote area, was closed midway through last week by the fire.

Higher humidity levels and rain aided crews in building a line completely around the fire, which hadn’t increased in size for several days, officials said.
