There have been reports of more than a dozen brush fires across the East Saturday.
In Greenville Saturday afternoon firefighters responded to a call at Melbourne Apartments. Several apartments had to be evacuated. Officials believe it was a cigarette or grill that started the blaze.
Around 3 acres of ground was damaged and four apartments received minor damage. One woman was treated for smoke inhalation.
Meanwhile in Wilson, 20 to 30 acres of land burned this afternoon during a brush fire, luckily no one was hurt.
Fire Officials in Wilson County say the blaze broke out in the South-Western part of the county in the Crossroads fire district.
That fire is now out, but nearby roads were blocked off earlier this afternoon while crews battled the blaze.
No structures were damaged and no word on what started the fire.
In Martin County Fire officials say they were called out to a barn on fire around 1 p.m. at 1626 Garrett Rd. They say the fire then spread to nearby woods and burned 5 to 6 acres. It took officials several hours to put out the blaze.
No one was injured fighting the blaze.
