QUINCY, Wash. – Update 1- 2015 hours PDT
A wildfire with three names is just as confusing as to the location and the fire resources it has called upon to respond to contain it.
Douglas County Resources
Fire units CREW-6201, CREW-6695, BLM E-6696, BLM H-1MR were just dispatched through the Central Washington Interagency Communications Center to SR 28 and milemarker 19 (T20 R22 S10) at 1811 hours PDT.
Grant County Resources
Grant County Sheriff’s Office Deputies immediately implemented a Level 3 evacuation order of those on Mansfield Road with those on Crescent Bar Road were told to shelter-in-place.
This wildfire is being called by three different wildfire incident names.
–> SR28 FIRE by the Grant County Sheriff’s office
–> SR28 CRESCENT BAR FIRE by Washington State Patrol
–> TRINIDAD FIRE by the Central Washington Interagency Communications Center
The Washington State Patrol states the cause was due to a vehicle losing a tire.
ALERT –> Traffic Alerts
SR28: At Crescent Bar is now open.
ALERT –> Evacuations
All evacuations on the Grant County side have been lifted. Police state evacuations have been reduced to Level 1 and request that all persons stay off of this roadway.
As a reminder, always yield to Fire apparatus, as firefighters will still be working in the area and because it is the #MoveOver law.
