Fire crews have contained a brush fire that burned four acres on Shades Mountain near the Homewood/Vestavia Hills line.
The fire broke out Monday evening near Independence Court near Brookwood Hospital, according to Vestavia Hills Police spokesman Brian Gilham.
Homewood and Vestavia fire departments are still on the scene putting out hot spots. A spokesman for the Vestavia fire department said the windy weather and steep terrain made it difficult to put out the blaze.
Fire officials say no homes were damaged and there is no immediate danger to any houses.
