Brush fire in Cave Creek prompts evacuations

Posted: Updated:

CAVE CREEK - Nearly a dozen homes in Cave Creek were evacuated after a brush fire quickly spread. Air tankers dropped water and fire retardant on the blaze, which broke out Friday afternoon, near Spur Cross Road, just North of Cave Creek Road.

It took a while, but crews were able to get the flame under control. About four-acres burned but the homes were spared.
