Lightning Sparks 300 Acre Fire in Naches

Posted: Updated:

NACHES, Wash. -- Lightning on Saturday sparked multiple fires on the Naches Ranger District, including the Conrad Complex. 

Firefighters say the fire is approximately 300 acres located north of Conrad Meadows, west of the South Fork Tieton River and approximately 8 miles south of Rimrock Lake.

Forest Service fire crews have been battling the fire since it began Saturday but say steep terrain and dry fuel conditions have made it difficult to fight the fire.

Fire restrictions remain in place on the Naches Ranger District.  Only gas fires or stoves are permitted. Campfires or other ignition sources are not permitted.
