The brush fire near Mozee that reached 7,000 acres yesterday, but no homes damaged is now 100% contained reports KIMA-tv, with crews still working to put out hot spots.

KIMA-tv says the brush fire reached thousands of acres in just few hours and to help in protecting your home from any future fires are a couple tips to do just that.

Trimming the bottom of the trees preventing fire to the lower limbs can be beneficial, KIMA-tv  reports, along with keeping trees away from the house and having sprinklers to moisten the area are important.

July 4th is the biggest concern, according to KIMA-tv, even though fireworks are illegal in Yakima County where one little firework in a hillside can take it out and get into homes.

KIMA-tv reports the cause of the recent brush fire is unknown with investigations having already begun.
