Campers and hunters were the
biggest single cause of forest fires
in North Carolina during October,
E. M. Foreman, county fire ward
en, reported today.
According to figures released by
the North Carolina Forest service,
campers apd hunters started 34 of
the 80 forest fires occurring on
state-protected land. Smokers were
responsible for 17 other fires, ac
cording to the report.
Nine-tenths of this burned-over
area has been in district 4, of
which Carteret county is a part,
but the biggest occurred in Hyde
The only fire in Carteret county
in October was at Back creek in
the vicinity of Open Grounds. Ap
proximately 40 acres burned then,
according to Mr. Foreman.
Total damage to forest land
throughout the state amounted to
$10,426. District Forester R. C.
Winkworth, New Bern, pointed
out, however, that this does not
take into consideration the game
destroyed, he said.
Mr. Foreman urges all Carteret
county hunters to use extreme
care this season while in, the
woods. "If everyone will do his
part to prevent forest fires by
breaking all matches before throw
ing them away, crushing cigarettel
stubs, and making sure fires
are dead, careless destruction ol
wild game and the forest can be
avoided," he commented.
