Firefighters quickly put out a small brush fire at an apartment complex Wednesday night that they say was started by illegal fireworks.

The fire was at Southeast 90th Avenue and Jannsen Road.

“(It’s a) good reminder that these can be dangerous and get out of hand,” said firefighter Brandon Paxton in an email.
