PEORIA - Winds fueled a house fire in the west Valley Saturday and spread flames to the home next door.

It happened this afternoon near 71st Avenue and Olive in Peoria.

Fire officials say an officer spotted the fire and it spread to a neighboring house before firefighters arrived.

But they were able to get both fires under control in about 30 minutes.

No word on how it started.
