SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) — Fireworks caused a fire on a dredge island in the intracoastal water near Surf City Friday evening.

Lieutenant Jon Burton of the Town of Surf City Fire Department, said a fireworks show on the island was sparked due to the dry conditions on the island causing the brush to catch.

Burton said this is not unusual for this to occur and happens almost every year.

No one was injured nor were any homes damaged.
