Lenoir County crews put out brush fire along Hwy. 258

KINSTON,N.C. (WNCT) — Investigators are looking into a brush fire that occurred along Highway 258 by Skinner Bypass near North Carolina Billiards in Lenoir County Thursday.

The call came in around 2:45 p.m., and Lenoir County Fire Marshal Dustin Burkett said it took about 10 minutes to put out.

Five to six fire trucks from North Lenoir and South Wood fire departments responded.
