Finley Fire Burns Over 5 Thousand Acres and it's Moving Rapidly

Posted: Updated:

A fire breaks out in Finley late this morning and the wind we were experiencing today has not helped the rescue crews.

The fire started this morning and crews are still fighting to put it out.

It began off of Les Blair Road in east Finely officials believe that the fire was sparked by a train that was going thorough the area.

Officials say an estimate of over 5-thousand acres have been burnt and the fire is spreading rapidly. Fire crews planned to set a back fire so the fire wouldn't jump Ayres Road into Hover.

The wind has definitely played a major role in containing this fire officials say. Crews from Franklin County, Pasco, rRchland, Kennewick, Hanford and Benton County have all responded to the fire.
