Firefighters quickly extinguished a small brush fire Thursday afternoon on the northern edge of the Dishman Hills in Spokane Valley.

Three hikers were in the area and smelled smoke, said Spokane Valley Fire Department spokeswoman Melanie Rose. They hiked to a high point and spotted the fire on a bluff above Appleway Boulevard across from CarMax and called it in just before 1 p.m., Rose said.

Department crews were joined by firefighters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Bureau of Land Management. The fire, which did not threaten any homes, was limited to about 1 acre. The cause is under investigation.
