Multiple agencies responded to a brush fire near Kings Road and Highway 92 in Cochise County Tuesday.

According to Carol Capas with the Cochise County Sheriff's Department, crews were able to contain the fire quickly.

In the progress of the fire, two homes, one large barn, and several outbuildings were destroyed.

Capas says nobody was injured in this incident.

Highway 92 remains on restricted access with only one lane of travel open due to smoke impingement and the number of fire fighter personnel on scene, Capas said.

The size of the fire is not available at this time.
