LONGVIEW — Firefighters from Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue and the Department of Natural Resources report they put out a 1-acre brush fire Wednesday afternoon at a north Kelso residence.

Crews responded at 3:46 p.m. to the 100 block of Lenora Lane, off Ostrander Road, after someone accidentally started a fire while burning logging debris in a pile, which quickly spread up a hill toward other homes, a Cowlitz 2 press release states.

No injuries or damage to homes were reported, though Cowlitz County deputies warned neighbors of the nearby fire.

When fire crews arrived, they estimate the blaze covered half an acre and had flames reaching over 20 feet.
