Brush fire near downtown Glennallen destroys 2 structures

    Glennallen, Alaska (AP) - State fire officials say a brush fire near downtown Glennallen has destroyed two uninhabited structures, but no homes are being threatened.

      The fire, estimated to be about 2 acres in size, started Wednesday.

    The Alaska Division of Forestry says the fire is believed to have started when a previous fire was not fully extinguished.

    The fire got into grass before spreading into wild lands near downtown Glennallen, where officials say it was slowly spreading.

    A helicopter was dropping water on hazardous materials burning within the fire perimeter.
