A controlled burn got out of control Friday afternoon, destroying two sheds in the process.
It happened shortly after 1:00 p.m. on Old Cherry Point Road, outside of New Bern.
Authorities say the homeowner was conducting the controlled burn when the wind picked up and caught the sheds on fire.
Three fire departments and state forestry crews took less than an hour to bring the fire under control. No one was hurt in the fire.
