WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Some Wilmington firefighters' burning efforts to get higher pay has rekindled.

Chuck Bower, the president of the Wilmington Professional Firefighters Association, revealed the latest in a series of billboards Monday seeking better pay.

"We changed the signs to keep the message fresh and to hopefully inspire further conversation leading up to the next city budget workshop," Bower said in a message to WECT Monday night.

There are three new messages, replacing three others that have been on display on Oleander Drive for a few weeks. The newest billboards can be seen near the 700 block of South College Road with messages such as 'above average services, below average pay.'
