One year ago today a lightning strike sparked one of North Carolina's largest wildfire that took months to extinguish.
People in Hyde, Washington and Tyrrell counties won't forget the Evans Road wildfire any time soon.
The fire burned a total of 40,704 acres in the three counties and cost $18,985,338.96 to put out. The fire was declared under control on September 24th, but continued to smolder.
At the height of the fire the state says there were 578 people working on the fire, some coming as far away as Texas and Arizona.
