Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- A Kennewick man may now have to pay for fire response costs after firefighters say his illegal burn sparked a brush fire nearly destroying a Kennewick home. 

The 1.5 acre blaze near 19th and Beech drew multiple fire departments. 

According to firefighters, it's illegal to burn anything but tumbleweeds within the city limits of Kennewick and Benton County, unless you're using your fireplace.
