A camp trailer was destroyed and a home was threatened after a controlled burn ignited a wildfire Monday in the Rimrock Meadows community north of Palisades.

The Rimrock community fire department was able to contain the fire to about half an acre about 2 p.m.

Firefighters from Grant County Fire District 13 and Ephrata then arrived to extinguish it.

Grant County firefighters said it is yet another reminder how quickly a controlled burn can be spread by winds.
