Spokane fire crews responded to several small brush fires that erupted along Interstate 90 near the Finch Arboretum this afternoon. Smoke and flames could be seen on the north side of the highway about 4 p.m., near the Garden Springs exit on the Sunset Hill. Firefighters from the Spokane Fire Department and Spokane County Fire District 10 had the fire under control by by 5 p.m. Crews said the fire appeared have burned in five or six different spots. Traffic is still moving slowly in the westbound lanes of the Interstate, and the right lane is still blocked, the Washington State Patrol said. At one point fire crews were concerned about one building to the north of the arboretum. The park is owned and maintained by the city of Spokane.
