MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Firefighters were battling two woods fires on North Mountain Wednesday night, said dispatchers.

Both fires covered about three acres and were in a rugged section of the mountain off Swinging Bridge Road, which is accessible off Tuscarora Pike, said dispatchers and firefighters on the scene.

Both fires were under control as of 10:30 p.m.

Some of the heavy duty trucks that were being used to get to the fire scene were parked at the entrance of Swinging Bridge Road.

Cold temperatures were causing some of the firefighting equipment to freeze, dispatchers said.
