BOULDER COUNTY - A small brush fire threatened two homes Saturday afternoon.

The Boulder Rural Fire Protection District says the 20-acre fire started around North 45th Street and Niwot Road and burned over to 49th Street and Niwot Road. Niwot Road was closed for a short time because of the fire, which was out by 5:30 p.m.

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
