Governor McCrory just announced that North Carolina will give $10,000 to anyone who can provide information that might lead to the arrest of those responsible for any of the recent wildfires.
“We’re committed to doing all we can to support our firefighters, protect people and property, and find those who may be responsible for any wildfires in North Carolina. Firefighters are making progress but the job is not over. I especially want to thank the volunteers serving as firefighters and those helping to feed, house and support firefighters in communities throughout our state.” commented Governor McCrory.
He gave the announcement during a press conference at the Bat Cave Volunteer Fire Department in Henderson County.
At this point there are now over 2,100 active firefighters combating the fires that have now burned over 46,000 acres and threatened 1,800 buildings throughout our state.
