Update on Fire at Wapato Fruit Warehouse

Posted: Updated:

WAPATO, Wa -  The Wapato Fire Department says the fire at Yakima Fruit and Cold Storage is almost completely out.

Fire crews returned to the fire this morning to continue spraying water on areas where smoke was still coming out.  Wapato Fire says that it's difficult to completely snuff out the fire because there's so much debris inside.

They can't get to hot spots where the fire may still be burning.  They still don't know what caused the fire, and don't expect to until early next week.

The fire investigator was expected to be on site some time late this afternoon or tomorrow.
