Boise and Eagle firefighters responded to a grass fire in Boise Foothills area on Wednesday evening.

Officials said the fire at 8200 W. Brookside Ln. started as a controlled fire by a homeowner that got out of control.

A roughly 2-acre grass fire is now contained.

Fire officials want to remind people that even though it is cold weather, the fire can still get momentum because of the dry cheat grass and the winds.
