HENDERSON, Nev. -- The flames could be seen for miles coming from a brush fire in Henderson on Sunday.
The fire caused traffic to be shut down on a long stretch of Sunset Road between Arroyo Grande Parkway and Valle Verde Drive.
The Henderson Fire Department said the brush fire started around 7 p.m. at the Whitney Mesa Recreation Area. Five fire crews made it out to the scene within minutes of the first call.
Fire officials say as much as three acres burned, but no one was injured, and no homes were damaged.
Patti Drew who lives across the street from the recreation area walked outside to see the growing fire. She also took video of the flames.
8 News NOW also spoke to a mother and daughter who saw the fire soon shortly after it started.
