Craven County Fire Officials Respond to Several Brush Fires

It's was busy day for firefighters in Craven County. Since noon Sunday, there were at least three reported brush fires. The first on 17-80 highway 101 which threaten three homes. The other started around 2:30 Cherry Point Road and less than thirty minutes later, a call of a field fire on 2925 Lofton Farm Road.
Emergency officials say these were controlled burns which got out of hand, possibily because of high winds.
