PREVIOUS STORY:

HUNTERS, Wash.- Firefighters are battling a brush fire off of Highway 25 north of Davenport, and south of Hunters, WA.

Washington Department of Natural Resources told KHQ the fire started near the intersection of Highway 25 & Enterprise Road on Sunday and began to grow in size on Tuesday. As of 2:00pm, it was estimated to be 25-30 acres in size, and because of the steep terrain, the fight is mostly happening from the air using scoopers and helicopters.

There have been evacuation orders issued, however the extent and location of those is unknown at this time. If you are being evacuated, the Stevens County Deputies or firefighters will notify you.

KHQ has a crew heading to the scene and we will update this story as soon as we get any additional information.
