Kootenai County fire crews respond to brush fire in Post Falls

POST FALLS, Idaho --- Kootenai County fire crews responded to a large bush fire on North Greensferry Road and East Hayden Avenue.

Officials said a large hay field was on fire as crews battled high winds.

A farmer's combine started the fire. Thankfully, the farmer was able to create a perimeter around the fire. If the flames had jumped the perimeter and crossed over the road the fire would have been much worse. 

The high winds caused the fire to burn 60 acres.

Fire officials said the fire is contained.
