Section of Red Rock closing because of fire damage

LAS VEGAS -- A section of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area will be closed for five years because of last year's Carpenter 1 fire, the Bureau of Land Management announced.

The BLM said Wednesday it will close more than 5,000 acres of land, including Harris Spring Road starting at where it intersects with State Route 157 and heading west for five miles to where U.S. Forest Service jurisdiction starts.

The agency says heavy rains and flash flooding in the section of land that was burned by the fire has caused washout and soil loss. During the closure, the BLM will work to rehabilitate the area and stabilize the soil.

The closure begins Oct. 24.
