PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Firefighters spent the day dealing with a fire at Walker Pallet Co. near Burgaw.

The call came in around 5 a.m. for a fire in the pallet yard behind the business. Six fire crews responded to the call to keep the fire from reaching the building. Tankers brought water in from surrounding areas to help.

“The fire is contained at this time,” Deputy Fire Marshal Tommy Batson said. “There will be crews on the scene throughout the day and probably in the evening hours monitoring the scene, protecting exposures, and maintaining the fire so it doesn’t spread into other areas.”

Batson says while the fire is contained, it is still burning. He says it could be a few days before investigators might know a cause.
