(AP) -The West Virginia Division of Forestry is seeking information from the public about a wildfire in a state forest last month. The cause of the 30-acre fire in the Clay Run area of Coopers Rock State Forest remains undetermined.

Anyone with information about the March 23 fire is encouraged to contact the division. The forest features public hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and picturesque views. Many shelters and other structures there were built by Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, including 11 now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
