Evacuation Order from Wildfire Lifted in Pickens County

ROCKY BOTTOM, S.C. (AP) – Authorities have lifted an evacuation order in Pickens County after firefighters were able to stop a wildfire from quickly spreading. The South Carolina Forestry Commission said in a news release that fire breaks built Saturday were keeping the fire on Pinnacle Mountain from spreading closer to homes and businesses. Officials say the 3-square mile blaze in Table Rock State Park is spreading much more slowly as wetter weather moves in. Light rain fell for several hours Sunday.
