The fire is now contained and spread after a grass burn got out of control, officials said.

The fire was near Pingel Creek Road at the top of the South Taylor Hill, where a massive blaze erupted in 2016, forcing an evacaution and destroying a home.

One other fire at Lower Cache Creek along Highway 29 was discovered Wednesday and was put out, officials say.
