Thousands of people over the weekend visited the Carmel National Park which was heavily damaged by the fire that broke out two weeks ago in the north, according to a statement released Saturday by the Nature and Parks Authority.

The authority said walking trails and parking lots in areas affected by the fire are still closed for use by visitors for safety reasons.

Crews from the authority already started repairing some of the damaged trails over the weekend, but the authority has asked the public to be patient as it finishes the repairs.
