A brush fire threatened a house in Tacoma on Tuesday.
Firefighters headed shortly after 4 p.m. to the 2000 block of East 32nd Street, where flames spread up a hillside toward a home, Tacoma Fire Battalion Chief Ben Flesher said.
A battalion chief and three engines went to the fire, which burned about an acre of brush in a gully.
Crews stopped the fire before it reached the house, he said, and had it mostly out shortly after 5 p.m.
Investigators haven’t yet determined what started the blaze, but a witness reported seeing two boys setting off fireworks in the area, Flesher said.
