Fire Burns Behind Business in Monkey Junction

NEW HANOVER COUNTY-- A small brush fire behind a big business kept firefighters busy saturday.

The fire happened behind the Wal Mart in Monkey Junction.

Witnesses say they saw a homeless man running from the scene...

The fire burned less than one acre of land, but officials worried the small blaze would get too close to a residential area on the other side of the brush.

Firefighters believe the homeless person lived in the wooded area and started the fire.
