Brush Fire On The West Plains

Posted: Updated:
AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. -

Several firefighting agencies were called out to a brush fire Sunday afternoon on the West Plains.

It was located out near Airway Heights near the intersection of Rambo Road and Jacobs Road.

The fire was about 2 acres at its peak, but fire crews were able to get a line around it and knock it down quickly.

No structures were burned and no injuries were reported.

We are told the cause is unknown, but the origin of the fire came along side Rambo Road. Crews say the flames were heading uphill against the wind, which aided them in their fight.

They say had they been traveling with the wind, things could've been much worse.
