A small brush fire threatened structures off Trunk Road in Wasilla, Monday morning after a power-line fell over igniting the fire, according to firefighters.
Firefighters from several crews, including the Division of Forestry, BLM, Mat-Su Central, and Palmer responded.
Officials say it took firefighters about 45 minutes to enclose the fire, as crews were fighting against 40 mile per hour wind gusts.
Firefighters were able to keep the fire to less than an acre, they were cleaning up "hot spots" for almost two hours.
Philip Blydenburgh with the Division of Forestry asks people to be aware of their surroundings during high wind warnings because the surroundings are dry and incredibly susceptible to fire. Blydenburgh warns that it only takes one spark.
