Posted: Updated:

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Crews in New Hanover County took less than an hour to extinguish what they call a large outdoor fire on Chip Drive in the county. That's off of Castle Hayne Road, just north of the GE plant.

An official with New Hanover County Fire tells WECT the fire was about 10 by 20 yards in size. A trailer like one that would be used to pull a motorcycle was burnt in that fire. No vehicles were on that trailer.

Fire officials say that fire was on vacant property. The call came in just before 1:15 Tuesday morning and crews left the scene by just before 2:30 a.m. The cause of that fire is under investigation.
