Nelson County, Virginia

There were a few tense moments Tuesday afternoon when an RV caught fire on Route 664 near the entrance to Wintergreen Resort. Wintergreen Fire & Rescue responded to the blaze and got it under control pretty quickly, but the whole mess snarled traffic going up and down the mountain until the scene was cleared. Wintergreen Fore & Rescue Chief Curtis Sheets said no one was hurt in the incident.

This was not related to any of the core drilling taking place at the same time in that location. Crews were taking samples nearby for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
