Firefighters said Tuesday afternoon they have more than 90 percent of the Fleetwood fire contained.

According to the Jefferson Post, North Carolina Forest Service Ranger Tim Lewis said crews should have the blaze completely extinguished by Friday. The Two Mile Fire began Sunday morning, and grew from a structure fire on Hidden Pasture Road – just off Paul Goodman Road in Fleetwood.

The fire was contained in an area between Mile High Lake Road, Sierra Road and US-221. Lewis said at least 435 acres have burned and other than the initial structure that started the fire, only an additional small shed has been lost.
