When we have a static method
and is referencing only local variables with in the method
and also is using classes like new is it thread safe

Is the following thread safe?
//Receives a file name as a parameter
//and returns the contents of that file as a string
public static string FileToStr(string fileName)
FileStream fStream = null;
StreamReader rRead = null;
string fileData=null;
fStream= new FileStream(fileName,
FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);
rRead = new StreamReader(fStream,System.Text.Encoding.ASCII);
catch(Exception eFile)
throw eFile;
return fileData;
