NORTH WOODSTOCK, N.H. — Crews are fighting a brush fire on a cliff above the popular Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in North Woodstock, New Hampshire, and officials have delayed opening of the attraction as a precaution.

Kate Wetherell, manager of the gorge, said Tuesday the fire was at Dilly Cliff and that crews were working to get it under control. She said the grounds and gorge have not been impacted.

The White Mountains attraction usually opens at 9 a.m. Wetherell said they hoped to reopen the Gorge to visitors on Wednesday.

The cliff climbs a steep 700 feet above the gorge.
