DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service is reopening some areas of the Superior National Forest for public use.

The areas had been closed because of a forest fire burning in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. But because of extended cool weather and precipitation, the Forest Service is reopening some of those areas as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

Most of the previously closed area outside the BWCA will be open. Also reopening is a section of the BWCA including the Lady Chain north to and including the Kekekabic Hiking Trail.

A small portion of the BWCA, including the Pow Wow Hiking Trail and Forest Road 377 leading to Forest Center, will remain closed.
