Two Friday Fires Raises Concern for Yakima Firefighters

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA. -- Friday afternoon, a man was burning weeds on his property when the fire quickly spread to his bushes and the neighbors fence.  Firefighters quickly responded and knocked down the fire. A homeowner received second degree burns trying to put out the fire.

Later in the evening, firefighters responded to a suspicious fire on the Greenway near Berglund Lake. Due to the remote location, crews had difficulty putting out the fire, but was able to contain it to a small patch of brush. 

Firefighters say this serves as a reminder that fires are illegal within city limits and everyone needs to be extremely cautious with the recent hot weather.
