Burning blue jeans torch median
A pair of burning blue jeans set fire to the median of Southwest Boulevard just off US 321 around 1:45 p.m. Thursday.
The Lenoir Fire Department Station 2 extinguished an area of burning grass a little more than 10 yards long and a few yards wide.
Lt. Phillip Hubbard said these types of incidents are few and far between, though the department has responded to burning clothes before.
No liars were found in the vicinity.
