Staying in air conditioning or using a fan are a couple of ways people are beating the heat.
Some people are getting free fans in Pitt County.
Greenville Utilities donated 50 fans to the Pitt County Council on Aging.
The fans will be given to people in need who are 60 years and older without air conditioning, and who haven't received a fan from the organization within the past year.
This is the 18th year for the fan giveway.
