Bear activity closes Ashley National Forest road

VERNAL (AP) — Officials have closed roads to the Ute Fire Lookout in the Ashley National Forest's Flaming Gorge Ranger District because of black bear activity at campsites and at Ute Tower.

Acting district ranger Dan Abeyta says efforts are under way with the Utah Department of Wildlife Resources to capture the bear.

The tower is 2 1/2 miles west of Sheep Creek Geologic Loop.
