PILOT MOUNTAIN, N.C. — North Carolina Forest Service and Division of Parks and Recreation officials have declared the Pilot Mountain State Park fire is 100 percent contained. Crews continued rehabilitation work on fire breaks Wednesday at Pilot Mountain State Park as well as an ongoing assessment of roads and trails for safety hazards.

“The emphasis is on rehabilitating the fire lines,” commented North Carolina Forest Service spokesman David Brown. “We have been putting in drainage structures to stop soil erosion and generally stabilizing fire lines and smoothing things up. It’s looking a whole lot better.”
