Auburn Brush Fire Prompts Regional Fire Response

Auburn, Washington

A brush fire burning on Auburn Way South is prompting a fire response bringing wildfire resources from Enumclaw (Brush 41), Mountainview, Auburn and surrounding areas.  This includes brush trucks and hand crews.

A recall was completed for Fire Stations 32, 33 and 38.

Brush Truck 95 arrived on-scene @ 1814 Hours.

Around 1755 hours, Auburn were completing a Blitz Fire with a 2 1/2″ and doing a lay of water from above.

Forward movement stopped @ 1809 hours.

The fire was over the roadside, down below.  Fire Managers planned on sending crews over the hillside with a belay.  They were trying to figure out how to get down to the fire without having using ropes. Time they agreed was not on their side.

We are trying to get additional details on this fire.
