SPARKS, NV - Fire crews have put out a brush fire north of Disc Drive between Sparks and Vista Boulevards.

The small fire burned about an acre along Vista Del Rancho Boulevard Wednesday afternoon. Light wind helped crews put it out quickly, though at first, it was burning toward an apartment complex.

Fire investigators say a preteen playing with a lighter started the fire, but it's unclear whether it was intentional.

No injuries or structure damage were reported.
