CHENEY - Fire crews remain on-scene of a small 17-acre brush fire that quickly raced along the powerlines about 2 miles southwest of the city east of state Highway 904 earlier this afternoon, Aug. 5.
Crews responded to the area between South Dayton and West Cameron roads about 1 p.m. for the fire that burned mostly dry grass and sagebrush behind a line of homes east of the highway. A few trees burned, as well.
Wind-whipped flames temporarily prompted Cheney police to go door-to-door outside of their jurisdiction to issue a Level III evacuation order to residents.
But fire crews quickly dows...
