Fire Destroys Equipment for Davis High School Track & Field Team

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A storage facility for Davis High School's track and field team caught fire Monday night.

The head coach says he left Kumler Field on Cornell Avenue around 6 PM Monday and then not even one hour later, everything was burned up.

The fire started around 6:30 PM Monday evening.

It took almost 20 firefighters from the City of Yakima's Fire Department to put the flames out.

Crews tell us about $30,000 to $40,000 worth of equipment is ruined.

"We've got high jumpers and pole vaulters that are going to district and potentially state and no where to practice," said Head Coach Rick Clark.

The coach says his next step is finding a place for his kids to practice.

Firefighters say a halogen light is suspected to have started this accidental fire.

The fire is still under investigation.
