YAKIMA VALLEY, WA - In Yakima and Kittitas Counties, firefighters have their hands full with a couple brush fires popping up Tuesday afternoon. Both fires are off of Interstate 90.

One is at the Yakima Training Center, the other is up near the Ryegrass rest area about 16 miles East of Ellensburg. 

The fire on Yakima Training Center grounds has burned over 250 acres and will continue to burn into the night. Officials are investigating the cause but they say it may have been sparked by the exhaust of a car. 

Another small fire beside Interstate 90 closed down the Westbound lanes for more than an hour Tuesday evening. The fire is now out and all lanes are open.
