Volusia County firefighters have extinguished a 2-acre brush fire in Deltona that had earlier threatened homes along Norvell Court and Nadine Drive.
Authorities said the fire was moving quickly through heavy brush, but a protective line had been created by the Division of Forestry, and firefighters were able to get control of the fire.
When the flames were about 60 feet from one home, the homeowner and a neighbor grabbed some garden hoses and attempted to soak the yard.
"It started to come up to the fence and touch the fence," said homeowner Brittany Grenier. "It was really scary!"
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
