CHANDLER — Crews are fighting a brush fire in Chandler near Old Price and Queen Creek roads that began Monday afternoon.

Officials say the fire has burned five to six acres.

A nearby health center had to evacuate.

The fire crossed containment lines, getting closer to two nearby businesses — the Gila River Health Center and the Wells Fargo Center.

The Red Tail Hawk health center is a clinic that operates 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and all remaining appointments were canceled for the day so the center could close down.

As of 4 p.m. on Monday, no injuries were reported.

It is unknown what started the fire.
