A grass fire that burned near Interstate 84 west of Cloverdale Road Sunday afternoon damaged a residential fence, but firefighters were able to extinguish it quick. The fire was reported just after 3 p.m.
Boise Fire Battalion Chief JD Ellis said the fire is under investigation, but the grass fire appears to have spread from a pile burning behind a house on West Dickens Drive.
The fire put up a black plume of smoke, and several motorists reported the fire. Firefighters were able to keep the fire to about one-tenth of an acre, and kept it from burning down to the road.
