The county has reopened a section of the Centennial Trail just north of Arlington after a short closure last week. The trail was closed because of a fire in a logjam beneath the Haller Bridge on the Stillaguamish River. The fire was extinguished and inspectors deemed the bridge safe for use. The fire had smoldered for several hours.
