PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - Fire officials in Puyallup, Washington, say a brush fire quickly spread into a storage facility Friday afternoon, lofting a huge cloud of smoke and prompting the temporary evacuation of some neighboring businesses.

A Central Pierce Fire District spokesman said there have been no injuries.

By early evening, the department said the fire was under control and 121 storage units had burned.

There was no immediate word on a cause.

Brush fires have been a nearly daily occurrence around tinder-dry Washington.

Puyallup is southeast of Tacoma.
