A brush fire that broke out in Brighton Monday afternoon left multiple cars damaged.

It happened in the 11800 block of East 121st Avenue at roughly the same time as a debris fire at the Waste Management facility that sent a plume of smoke into the air that was visible for miles.

Brighton Fire says the blaze closed 120th Avenue between Peoria and Oakland streets.

As of around 1:40 p.m., the fire was out. Around 3 acres were burned overall -- and a shed was also damaged.

Investigators believe the blaze may have been human caused.
