Reynolda Road entrance closed until about 9 a.m.

This message was emailed to students, faculty and staff on Nov. 10:

The Reynolda Road entrance to campus is closed temporarily this morning due to a truck fire outside the Porter Byrum Welcome Center.  Wake Forest Road in that area is expected to reopen at approximately 9 a.m.

A Wake Forest truck used in leaf collection caught fire earlier this morning at the entrance to the Welcome Center.  Winston-Salem firefighters and other first responders  have responded and are extinguishing the truck fire. Their vehicles are blocking Wake Forest Road there.

No injuries occurred.  No other damage occurred.

Motorists and others are advised to stay away from that immediate area on the west side of campus and use other roads to enter campus.
