VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Vancouver firefighters were busy Thursday afternoon battling three simultaneous brush fires along Highway 14.

Vancouver Fire Department said they dispatched nine apparatuses to the north side of Highway 14 between Ellsworth Road and Andresen Road at 2:50 p.m.

Ten firefighters extinguished a 250-foot fire that was burning brush and grass at milepost 5, just west of Ellsworth.

The second fire was at milepost 4, west of Leiser Road. Five firefighters battled that fire which was about 400 feet long.

A third fire was burning on the east side of Andresen Road at Buena Vista Drive, just north of Highway 14. Six firefighters, along with several neighbors with hoses, were able to bring that fire under control within 15 minutes.

The cause of the fires are under investigated.
