A brush fire was contained to a small area Wednesday afternoon as firefighters responded to a blaze near the Four Corners area.
The Southeast Thurston Fire Authority responded to calls of a brush fire around 12:30 p.m. on a residential property near the corner of Bald Hills Road and 110th Avenue S.E. Flames scorched a 150-foot strip of brush along the railroad tracks.
The fire was fully contained in under a half-hour. Diggers isolated the fire while a few hoses quickly extinguished the flames.
No injuries were reported and a cause had yet to be determined, said Capt. Don Wilson.
It's possible a pedestrian walking along the railroad flicked a cigarette, causing the fire, Wilson said, but no evidence had been found.
