Caldwell wildfire under control

BLOWING ROCK, NC (AP) — Authorities say a wildfire that in northwest Caldwell County is now under control.

The Charlotte Observer reported the U.S. Forest Service crews have contained the blaze. They say the fire may burn 250 acres before it is extinguished.

The fire started late Friday night. Fire-fighting crews set up a containment line around the blaze Sunday and got it under control.

A reduced crew was expected to be working the fire Monday.

No buildings have burned and no injuries have been reported.
