SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Fire Crews say the brush fire near Mirabeau Park is now contained. The fire was located inside the Natural Area that is controlled by the Department of Natural Resources. DNR officials say the fire is small and that they have two DNR firefighting engines on the way to the scene.
The fire burnt approximately one half of an acre including a couple of large trees. Bill Clifford with Spokane Valley Fire says that it is not unusually for transients or young people to be in that area and sometimes start fires.
Water was hard to come by for fighting the fire but Valley Fire crews were able to gain quick control of the blaze by digging fire lines around the fire.
