Fire crews quickly contain small brush fire near Airway Heights

Posted: Updated:
AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. -

Fire crews with Spokane County Fire District 10 and the Department of Natural Resources responded to a reported brush fire near Airway Heights Wednesday afternoon.

The fire broke out in the area of Deno and Craig Road around 5 p.m. It was quickly contained at two acres. Crews say winds around the fire were actually favorable Wednesday because they kept the fire from spreading to nearby trees, which contributed to the fire's quick containment.

No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported.

Fire Chief Frank Scharff tells KHQ Wednesday's fire is a good reminder ahead of 4th of July weekend to remain vigilante and be extra careful.
