A fast moving brush fire broke out along Interstate 5 near 56th street in Tacoma Sunday afternoon.
Flames began to spread quickly fueled by dry brush along a hillside next to the northbound lanes of the interstate.
Firefighters with the Tacoma Fire Department were able to contain the fire to a small section of the hillside. No structures were lost, and there were no reported injuries.
Washington State Patrol trooper Brooke Bova asked drivers in a twitter post not to throw cigarettes out of their vehicles.
The Northwest has been experiencing record high temperatures along with little rainfall this summer making the fire danger extremely high.
