The hill behind the Rheem Shopping Center was home to a fire this afternoon that led to many of the stores being evacuated, as well as some of the nearby apartments.

The fire has been contained and put out at this time, but helicopters and firefighters are continuing to hit the hill with water to ensure that the fire does not reignite.

The fire did get close to some of the apartments residing on the hill, but initial reports are that there was no physical damage to any of the buildings in the area.

Those in the area are suggested to remain inside as the smoke from the fire is still in the air.
