Cuyahoga River remains ‘healthy’ 50 years after infamous fire


A national park that protects a quarter of the Cuyahoga River is prepping to celebrate the river’s health 50 years after it infamously caught fire.

A torch traveling the length of the 85-mile long river will make a stop in Cuyahoga Valley National Park on Friday on its way to Cleveland.

The event comes one day before the 50th anniversary of the June, 22 1969 fire.

It will feature the passing of the torch along with music, poetry and the unveiling of a new sculpture.
