NEW RIVER STATE PARK — Not all fires are bad fires, according to New River State Park ranger Josh McIntyre. He, along with Blue Ridge Resource Conservation & Development Council Inc and a host of other fire professionals held a prescribed fire training at New River State Park to demonstrate how fire can be used to rehabilitate and enhance natural landscapes.

While the High Country had a dry start to the winter, wet January conditions were right for a “learn and burn” event at the Wagoner Access of New River State Park just beside the river.
