Grass fire threatens homes near Forest Grove

Posted: Updated:

A fast-moving brush fire threatened at least two homes in rural Forest Grove Wednesday afternoon.

The fire, which grew to four acres, was touched off by farm equipment working in a wheat field, said a spokesman for the Forest Grove Fire Department.

It took more than three hours for firefighters to declare the flames under control.

No structures were damaged in the fire, but the proximity of the flames to several homes made for some anxious moments for people who live in the area.
