Pender fires slow; smoke still a problem

READ MORE:

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- The Pender County wildfires have slowed down slightly, but are not done burning yet.

The Juniper Road Fire that quickly grew to more than 30,000 acres in less than two weeks has only grown by about 1,000 acres since Thursday. However smoke and fog continue to be problems along I-40 and US 17.

Yesterday's fireworks have had no known effect on the condition of the wildfires.
