Vancouver brush fire threatened several homes

Posted: Updated:

A fast-moving brush fire threatened several homes on NE 108th Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters reacted quickly, and kept the flames from reaching any homes, but there was damage to three back yards, and a small wooden shed was destroyed in the fire.

"Thank God that the wind shifted, because it literally stopped right at my fence," said Traci Hymus, who lives near the field the fire burned.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
