Firefighters in Spokane Valley have contained brush fire in the area of Pines and Mansfield near Mirabeau Park. It took firefighters about an hour to knock it down, and DNR will remain on scene throughout the night to make sure nothing flares up.
At about the same time, crews were called to a small brush fire on the south hill near Palouse Highway and Regal. Firefighters quickly contained the blaze and extinguished it.
No structures were threatened by either fire. A cause has yet to be determined.
