0617 Controlle d burn near Pollocksville

If you've been seeing smoke in Jones County Tuesday morning, there's no need for alarm.

A controlled burn took place on a wheat field off Highway 17 near Oak Grove Road, just north of Pollocksville, Tuesday morning.

That burn is now over, but producers plan to burn several more wheat fields in the area in the next few days.
