Liberty Lake brush fire prompts fire officials to evacuate homeowners as precaution

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.- Fire investigators will be on scene Tuesday morning to determine what caused a brush fire to break out on Garry Road and Clark Road in Liberty Lake.

Fire crews first responde to calls about the fire just after 1:00 Tuesday morning. When they got on scene, they say the fire was being fanned by winds and was quickly growing. As a precaution, they asked homeowners nearby to evacuate their homes in case the fire proved uncontainable and spread.

A fire battalion chief at the scene told KHQ that the wind was helping the fire spread, but the cool temperatures and moisture in the air eventually allowed firefighters to get a handle on it.

The fire was out by around 2:00 Tuesday morning without spreading to any homes or structures. There are no injuries and no reports of damage.

Right now there's no word on what caused the fire, but fire investigators will be working to determine a cause.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
