BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Firefighters in Brunswick County have been busy battling wildfires this afternoon.

The first fire was in Leland. It started in the Springstone neighborhood off Lanvale Road. Firefighters believe landscapers were using a mower that hit a rock and sparked the fire. The wind made it bigger.

Crews are also working a fire on Bethel Road near Sunny Point north of Southport. Firefighters say although they can't confirm what started this fire, they think it was caused by a train that went by.
