Chimney Rock Village to open to public Monday

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- Chimney Rock Village will be opened to the public at noon Monday, according to a press release from N.C. Forest Service.

The area has been closed due to the Party Rock Fire, and only recently opened to Village business owners and residents. Henderson County school buses will also resume their normal travel routes Monday.

Officials say the public is strongly encouraged to stay out of the burned woodlands, as many dangers such as trees that are weakened from the fire and smoldering stump holes are in the area. Standing dead and cured trees may fall without warning and may cause serious injury or death, said the press release.
