PARKLAND, Wash. -- A large brush fire temporarily forced the closure of westbound State Route 512 at Portland Avenue late Friday afternoon and destroyed one structure and a vehicle.

"The fire has spread approximately half a mile and reached a home in area," Trooper Guy Gill said in a tweet. "Troopers and Fire are on scene. EB lanes of 512 are open."

By 7:15 p.m., Central Pierce Fire said all lanes of SR 512 had been reopened. But some damage was reported.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
