Firefighters Quickly Put Out Brush Fire in College Area

Firefighters quickly put out a brush fire behind an apartment complex and businesses in the College Area.

It started Wednesday around 4 a.m. on 67th Street, near Amherst Street. 

Firefighters believe it may have started in a homeless encampment.

The area has a lot of debris that could have fueled the flames, but crews responded very quickly and prevented the fire from spreading to the buildings nearby. 

Everyone is okay.
