Oak Island controlled burn

Posted: Updated:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Members of the Oak Island Fire Department staged a "controlled burn" in an effort to give officers an opportunity to lead a team going into a live blaze. 

The department set different rooms on fire throughout the day until the house was burned to the ground.

Assistant Fire Chief Steve Conway says the event was successful and the department plans on having at least one more controlled burn in October.
