RIVERDALE — A fire along the Weber River Trail damaged a boardwalk on Friday.

The fire burned a boardwalk near 3900 South on the north end of the trail, according to a Facebook post from Riverdale City. The fire caused the closure of the trail. 

Officials say the trail will be closed until further notice and are asking the public to stay away from the area, the post says. 

Dry vegetation and cotton on the ground have caused fire danger to remain “extremely high,” according to the Facebook post. Fire restrictions are in place along the trail.
