“We prevented it from getting into the treeline that is kind of the backyard for people’s houses,” Tacoma Fire spokesman Joe Meinecke said.
The cause of the blaze has not yet been determined.
They were fighting the 200 foot by 200 foot blaze in the grass there, trying to keep it from trees and houses, they said.
Fire spokesman Joe Meinecke said the blaze is on a bluff above Interstate 5.
