An Indianapolis grass fire has been brought under control after threatening hangars at an airport and nearby homes.

The fire was brought under control Wednesday night about 45 minutes after it started near Eagle Creek Airport on the city's northwest side.

Wayne Township Fire Department officials said at one point that fire crews were trying to defend airport hangars and nearby homes from being affected by the fire.

The Indianapolis Star quoted police scanner traffic as saying billows of smoke hampered visibility for motorists on Interstate 465.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries occurring.
