Road 11 Fire Goes State Mobe | Douglas County, WA | 1

Waterville, Washington – A 3-alarm brush fire broke out west of SR 172 and Roads 11 NW and E NW in Douglas County around three-o’clock in the afternoon on Saturday, July 11, 2020.

The cause is unknown at the time of this post but we know there have been several RED FLAG WARNINGS issued by the NWS Spokane today and will go into the late hours of the night.

The fire behavior has been extreme with a high rate of spread as it jumps severeal local roadways and burning everything in its path.  At one time, the fire was said to be bumping up against major SR 172, which prompted immediate closures of this road along with many others and Level 1 and 2 evacuations.

Currently, the fire has scorched 2,000 acres and has a 0% containment status.

==============  Evacuations in effect =================

Level 2:

  • area south of McNeil Canyon Road near the fire
  • SR 172 at Rd 8 to McNeil Canyon Road
  • McNeil Canyon Road to the Town of Mansfield

It has been reported that only two outbuildings have been lost. No assessments of damaged structures have been reported as of yet, as the fire is burning out-of-control.

State mobe has been granted and requested by the Incident Commander. We are still waiting for what units/agencies will be deployed.  Stay tuned for more future updates!

Resources include:  Grant County Sheriff Office, WSDOT and local fire agencies.

Southend Firefighters Respond to Commercial Fire

White Center, Washington | Southend Fire assets and equipment were dispatched to a 2-Alarm Commercial structure fire on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, just before five o’clock in the morning.

Units were quickly on-scene. Agencies were from the Puget Sound, Tukwila, Burien, Tukwila and Skyway Fire Departments, as well as the North Highline and King County Fire Districts.

King County Paramedics (IAFF 2595) and the King County Sheriff’s assisting with medical and traffic control.

Image

REHAB units were also tied in to the call bringing out REHAB units 2, 3, 302, 304 and 322.

Crews brought in aerials and specialized equipment working to put out the stubborn and fierce fire.

The 2-Alarm incident took place  in the 10700 block of 16th Avenue, S.W., Seattle, Washington.

The structure was verified to be vacant building once housing a former funeral home.

As it continued to burn in the area, roadway closures began impacting the White Center community streets, one block out from 16th Avenue S.W. to S.W. 107th Streets.  This would be a normal process as multiple lines would be laid on the streets and up connected to hydrants.  This is to avoid drivers or those from damaging or destroying fire hoses.

No reports of firefighter injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.

JULY 4 2020 | WASHINGTON WILDFIRE ACTIVITY

Today has been a very busy day for wildland firefighters across the Nation on this Independence Day.  It is also one day in a year where it is different that years  COVID19, a virus in a pandemic has many people cooped up and a lot of folks say they will be celebrating like they always have.

In Washington State, it is dry and there have been some very hot days but not compared to years past.  Please refer to your local fire department/agency’s bans or limited restrictions on fireworks.

Here is a list of wildfires that have occurred in the State of Washington today.  This is up to the date of this post.  NOTE:  It is not dark yet but soon-to-be. We will report on the wildfires from tonight’s activities.  We hope there won’t be but we know people are this time of year.

Wishing everyone a safe and sane rest of your 4th of July!
