TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Firefighters extinguished a large brush fire on Tucson's eastside Sunday night.

Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department tells KGUN9 that firefighters responded to the area of Valencia and the Pantano Wash after passerbys called 9-1-1 to report a brush fire.

Once on scene, firefighters discovered that the blaze had burned a trailer, along with multiple trees and brush, according to Baker.

It took a little over 30 minutes to put out the flames, Baker said.

No one was injured and no homes were threatened by the fire. The burned area was less than one acre, according to Baker.
