Firefighters Battling Several Brush Fires Near Connell

Posted: Updated:

CONNELL, Wash. - Firefighters from throughout the area are helping to fight several brush fires near Connell along US 395.

A viewer tells NBC Right Now there are several fires on the south and north parts of town.

State troopers have stopped a semi hauling an oversize load that's carrying a piece of heavy construction equipment. We're not sure if this has anything to do with the cause of the fires.

Local farmers are also helping to plow fire lines.
