Local firefighters fought and extinguished a brush fire between Sherburne Road and Cliff Robinson Lane on Tuesday afternoon.
The reported 5.1-acre fire was called in around 2:15 p.m. and contained about 90 minutes later.
Assistant fire chief Dan Orr with Clallam County Fire District 3 said the cause is unknown as of Tuesday afternoon.
The fire was turned over to firefighters with the Department of Natural Resources with crews coming from Forks to ensure the fire is extinguished, Orr said.
A DNR investigator was on scene Tuesday afternoon looking for the cause, he said.
No injuries or damage to structures were reported on the private property, Orr said, and electricity was not impacted to nearby homes.
“The big deal was keeping the fire out of the trees,” Orr said.
A nearby resident asking to remain anonymous said the fire appeared to have started near a fence on the south side of Cliff Robinson Lane before the wind spread it south.
Along with District 3, firefighters, first responders and engines with Clallam County Fire District 2, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, Sequim Police, Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Parks Service reported to the fire.
