CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. —
State forest officials told Channel 9 a wildfire has ignited over night that is burning about 150 acres in Caldwell County.Fire officials plan to send a new team of about 55 firefighters to the High Eagle fire Tuesday morning.The fire is contained on three sides, but the forest service said the terrain is so rugged; it is making it hard to get the rest of the fire under control.There are sheer cliffs in the area off Highway 321 about eight miles from Lenoir.If the weather permits, the state will launch aircraft about 10 a.m. to size up the fire from the air.A separate 50-acre forest fire broke out in Caldwell County on Friday off Globe Mountain Road. N.C. Forest Service crews were able to get that fire under control Monday morning.http://bcove.me/00vhazmj
