The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is interviewing two teens who may have been involved in starting a 10-acre brush fire in Graham on Friday. No arrests have been made, but the department is interviewing a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old. Strong winds stoked the fire and threatened a neighborhood near the 6300 block of 255th Street Court East, according to Pierce County Firefighters. Residents were forced to evacuate. "I was just pretty numb over the whole thing," said homeowner Judy Johnson, who was among those who had to leave her home. "It's your home, and you look and you think wow, that's everything. That's your life. And I don't know if it would've gone up in flames – I don't know what I would have done." Johnson said the flames came within 10 feet of her house.
