Another Fire: Crews Battling Blaze In Tyrrell County

Fire crews in Eastern Carolina have yet another blaze to fight. The NC Division of Forest Resources says a 109-acre fire is burning in a wheat field in the Kilkenny area of Tyrrell County.

Andy Hux says the fire started over the weekend. Crews have been able to fully contain the fire. However, Hux says since there is ground fire, the risk exists for the blaze to jump containment lines.

Hux says the fire may also cause smoke issues for the surrounding area.
