A brush fire in Alton that prompted evacuations and a road closure is now 100% contained, according to fire chief John J. Salinas.

The large brush fire on Bryan Road, south of the 5-Mile Line, caused the city to ask people to avoid Bryan Road between 4-Mile Line and 5-Mile Line.

The city asked residents living in that area to evacuate, but Salinas said there is currently no threat to homes in the area. 

5-Mile Line remains closed, but residents can return to their homes, the city announced. 

Channel 5 News has a crew heading to the scene. Check back for updates.
