PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A second fire broke out Saturday morning at the Walker Pallet Company in Pender County.

According to Pender Fire Marshal, Charles Newman, the fire broke out in the same area that a fire started in early December.

Newman said that workers at the factory were cleaning up the burnt material from the December fire when a hot fire ember landed in the grass and burnt two 18 wheeler tractor trailers in the yard.

The two trucks are a total loss.

There were no injuries and no evacuations.

The fire was under control by noon, and fire crews said they would stay at the scene to put out hot spots.

Newman said at this point, there is no indication that the fire is arson.
