The Boise Fire Department responded late Tuesday morning to a grass fire that officials initially believed might threaten homes in the Hidden Springs area.

Two acres burned off North Schicks Ridge Road at North Upper Ridge Place, Boise Fire Department spokeswoman Tammy Barry said. The fire was ruled accidental.

Crews got to the scene and contained the fire before it had a chance to harm any buildings. A firefighter heard via a radio scanner said crews extinguished the fire two to five feet away from some structures.
