EWAN, Wash. (AP) — State fire resources have been sent to help fight a fire burning east of Ritzville, Washington, near the unincorporated town of Ewan.

The Wagner Road Fire started around 2 p.m. Thursday and by Thursday evening had burned about 1.25 square miles (3.2 square kilometers) in crops and rangeland, according to a written statement from Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste.

He said mandatory evacuations were in effect and that the blaze threatened structures, utilities and farmland. Air resources were also called to help douse the fire. However, KXLY is reporting that evacuations have been lifted.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
