ORTING, Wash. -- Firefighters are monitoring a brush fire they say is burning close to homes in Orting.

The fire is in a wooded area. Crews say they had to evacuate a few homes overnight because the flames could spread quickly.

Those people were allowed back into their homes as crews worked to contain the fire.

The fire was only a few acres as of Wednesday morning, but there was concern that the fire could grow.
