Smoke coming from controlled burn in Brunswick County


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (NEWS RELEASE) - We would like to advise everyone that there is a control burn in Brunswick County in the Orton Plantation area.

The control burn has caused the smell of smoke and light smoke to be visible throughout our area.

The 911 center is receiving a large amount of calls and are trying to screen these calls the best they can.

We would ask the public not to call for smell or light visible smoke only, call only if they see rising smoke or a large amount of smoke in the area.
