UPDATE: Hampstead wildfire weakening

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — Crews continue to contain a blaze near Hampstead after a property owner’s controlled burn got out of control Saturday afternoon.

According to NC Forest Service spokeswoman Laura Prevatte, the fire has burned nearly 500 acres but calmed significantly after sunset, when humidity levels increased. It started near the intersection of Hoover Road and Godfrey Creek Road in Hampstead.

Crews from Pender, New Hanover and Onslow Counties are helping control the fire. Firefighters will continue to monitor the fire and control lines throughout the night.

Officials called in all their resources, including air tractors, air tankers, a helicopter and eight tractor plows, to help control the fire before it posed any threat to people and structures.

No homes are in the path of the fire at this point, and no one has been asked to evacuate. The fire is heading away from homes and into the Holly Shelter Game Land.

The combination of gusty winds and very low humidity makes for a dangerous situation when it comes to fire. People are advised not to burn in these conditions.

Stay with WWAY for developing details.
