LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Firefighters responded to a brush fire on 24th Street Southwest in Lehigh Acres, near the intersection of Gunnery Road and State Road 82.

The half-acre fire came dangerously close to some homes, but was 100% contained late Sunday night.

Lehigh Acres Firefighters suspect the brush fire sparked after someone shot off fireworks in the neighborhood.

"Right now, the best thing I can say that as dry as conditions are, and as windy as it is and the low humidity...any spark, anything will start a fire and spread very quickly," Lehigh Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Dilallo said Sunday.

Lehigh Acres Firefighters will return to the area Monday morning to resume their investigation into the cause of the fire.
