[ARCHIVED] Onslow County Monitoring Forest Fire

The Juniper Road Two Fire within the Holly Shelter Game Land is now 53% contained. The fire remains 1,226 acres in size after Monday evening rainfall delivered one-half inch of rain on the fire area. Though rainfall totals will help extinguish the fire, incident personnel remain vigilant with firefighting efforts. 

“We can’t get complacent. History tells us from previous wildfires in this area that the vegetation can dry out quickly and areas that are still smoldering within the fire imprint can reignite available fuels,” said Incident Commander Michael Cheek. “We’re grateful for the rain we’ve received, but we’re not turning our backs to this fire.” 

With increased containment and rainfall, certain resources assigned to the incident are beginning to demobilize. Resources remaining on the incident include six tractor plows with six crewmen, one low ground pressure track vehicle, one scout and one lead plane, two single engine air tankers, one helicopter, and 62 NCFS personnel. 

A temporary flight restriction (TFR) remains in effect for the Juniper Road Two Fire. The TFR restricts all civilian aircraft, manned and unmanned, within 5 miles of the fire. The flight restriction remains in place until aviation support is no longer needed.
