Brush fire burns hill north of Selah

YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Firefighters contained a small brush fire that burned a hill late Monday morning near the 100 block of Foster Lane. No homes were damaged.

Crews told KIMA the fire burned only 3 acres but threatened several structures before they contained it.

Officials said it's too early to know what caused the fire. Crews will remain at the scene for a few hours to mop up any hot spots.

A hot stretch of weather is on tap around the Northwest this week and now with a threat of thunderstorms, wildfire danger risk is on the rise.
