Several projects in the Piedmont and High Country are getting a boost with grants from the North Carolina
State and local firefighters are trying to get control of a wildfire in a rugged and remote area of North Carolina, officials said.
It's been five months since state regulators ordered Duke Energy to excavate coal ash at six remaining sites across North Carolina. Duke is taking steps to modernize the plant, but for those who live nearby, the action isn't enough.
More than a hundred people gathered at Walnut Cove Elementary Thursday night to voice their concerns over coal ash stored at the Belews Creek plant in Stokes County.
Forsyth County officials are considering a plan to buy land near Duke Energy's Belews Creek Steam Station. The property would be used for a new regional park.
Some residents in the Piedmont will get a chance to voice their concerns about coal ash during a public meeting Thursday.
