Firefighters were out in force on Pilot Mountain today, working on strengthening a fire line that has been established to encircle a fire that has burned 675 acres in the state park.

“Very little active flames remain, as the fire has burned out to containment lines,” said Charlie Peek, a spokesman for the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. “There are still dead trees, logs and duff (decaying leaves, pine needles and twigs) smoldering within the burned area.”
