Area firefighters stayed busy extinguishing blazes that erupted Friday and continued through the weekend at various sites in Brunswick County.
Phillip Inman, county ranger for the North Carolina Forest Service, estimated about 30 fires broke out over a four-day period.
One of the largest ones burned along Alligator Road in the Ash area, Brunswick County Fire Marshal Scott Garner said.
More fires flared up in Supply.
“It’s across the board,” Inman said Monday. “We’ve had a number of woods arson fires.”
