Up to 10 acres near 87th Ave and Camelback burned Monday night before firefighters could extinguish the blaze.
The flames apparently came within 50 feet of a house and shed, but crews worked quickly and aggressively to knock it down.
No one was hurt. Camelback was shut down between 87th Ave and 89th Ave.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
