Local fire crews and the Bureau of Land Management knocked down a brush fire Thursday night north of Eagle and east of Highway 16.

Several vehicles and dozens of crewmembers arrived shortly after 7 p.m.

CBS 2 News reports, it looks like the fire was caused by human activity, but the cause is still under investigation.

BLM says containment is set for Friday and should be wrapped up by 8 p.m. on Saturday.

The fire burned about 140 acres. There were no structures threatened and no injuries to report.

All roads in the area are open to traffic but fire crews warn the public to be careful.
