No structures were threatened as of late afternoon, and firefighters were seeking a way to reach the fire. The call for the fire came in at 4:40 p.m.

Also on Tuesday, a half-acre brush fire near Stephanie Way and Vicky Lane was extinguished before it could damage outbuildings that had been considered threatened.
