HAMPSTEAD – With the Juniper Road Two Fire now 77% contained, the N.C. Forest Service is preparing for the demobilization of some resources. Operations personnel and a more condensed incident management team remain on the scene. The fire is 1,226 acres in size and will continue to be closely monitored by personnel as mop-up operations continue.
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.
