Fire departments from six communities are battling a brush fire this afternoon in Bellingham off route 495.

The blaze broke out about 5.30 p.m. in a wooded area near Exit 18 and 19 off the interstate.

No injuries are reported but authorities are worried about the fire spreading near homes.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag throughout the region warning because of high winds and dry weather conditions in the area.
