WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Fire Department and NC Forestry Service are fighting a woods fire off of George Anderson and 17th St.

Units on scene advise there are approximately three to four acres involved, and are working diligently to bring it under control.

It is unknown if any structures are threatened at this time.
