PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — On the eastern side of Pender County crews continue fighting the Juniper Road Fire in the Holly Shelter Game Land. Firefighters say they now have 25 percent containment on the 21,500-acre fire.

Today crews set controlled burns in the stag drive and traders neck area of on the southeast side of the fire. While this should help battle the fire, it will likely mean even more smoke in the area.
