Witnesses said old wood and shrubs caught on fire and flames were about four to five feet tall. 

Firefighters said when they arrived neighbors were using a hose to put the flames out.

No one was hurt and firefighters quickly had everything under control, but police were questioning neighbors about what caused the fire.

Neighbors said there are a lot of children that play where the fire started.

The fire is still under investigation.
