No Peak closure – rain stops fire

The BMC has met with the “Fire Panel” about the subsurface fire that had threatened to close the Peak park this weekend. After worries that the area was too dry, the weather obliged by dumping it on the peat, putting the fire out. So, no closure.The decision will be reviewed on Friday but with more rain (light) forecast for the area, it looks unlikely that the crags will be shut.
