PONZER, N.C. (WNCT) — The N.C. Forest Service reports the Ferebee Road fire in Hyde County is now 100% contained, as of July 8.

Officials said recent rain and consistent water penetration into the fire area “allowed firefighting crews to make significant progress on the Ferebee Road Fire.”

In its latest updated, the N.C. Forest Service said they have ceased water pumping operations.

Officials said a little more than 700 million gallons of water has been pumped in total from New Lake and Phelps Lake.

Crews kept the fire at 1,938 acres after it reached that size on June 25.
