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.
