WENATCHEE — A fire that broke out in the 5200 block of the Malaga-Alcoa Highway burned 2 to 5 acres of sagebrush.

Numerous agencies were called in to help because the first firefighters on the scene thought it was burning hotter than expected, said Bill Neckels, deputy chief of Chelan County Fire District 1.

No structures were threatened.
