WENATCHEE — A Martin Street resident was burning weeds with a small propane torch when the fire got out of control and spread to a large evergreen bush Sunday evening.

The fire at 18 Martin Place sent up a large amount of smoke, said Battalion Chief Glen Widener with the Wenatchee Fire Department.

Firefighters, and residents with garden hoses put out the fire, which was reported about 7:15 p.m.
