Officials Say Fire Caused By Someone Burning Yard Debris In Shed

Crews responded to a fire at the intersection of Piney Green Road and Old 30 Road in Onslow County around noon Thursday.

Officials tell WITN News a shed caught on fire, as well as two cars.

Officials say the owner was burning yard debris inside a shed, and it grew out of control. The fire marshal says the owner said he was not aware of the red flag warning.

The winds and relative humidity caused the flames to grow quickly.

Four fire departments were called to the scene. No one was hurt.
