EAST WENATCHEE — A teenage boy playing with sparklers Thursday set off a 2- to 3-acre fire that threatened three to four homes along Rock Island Road and closed Highway 28 for about an hour.

The fire burned sagebrush and grass along the highway south of East Wenatchee. Wind blew the fire away from houses that line the west side of the 500 block of Rock Island Road, which parallels the highway. The blaze came within about 100 yards of three to four homes, said Cy Sousley, battalion chief with Chelan County Fire District 1.
