Crews have quickly contained a wind-driven 25-acre grass fire in Prescott Valley that apparently was sparked by a downed electrical pole.

Authorities say the fire started about 3:45 p.m. Thursday and flames crept close to some homes on the north side of Manley Drive.

The Daily Courier in Prescott posted photos online showing some residents using garden hoses to wet down the areas near their fenced backyards.

Crews from Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority remain in the scene to mop up hot spots.
