A lit cigarette thrown out a vehicle window may be to blame for a brush fire Monday.

The fire burned an estimated four to five acres between Belhaven and Leechville in Beaufort County.

Forestry Service Officials and 5 other area departments responded to the fire along Highway 264 East.

The N.C. Division of forest resources says just over 76 hundred acres have burned in wildfires in the state so far this year.
