The Wildfire Log | Wenatchee Brush Fires | WA | 1

WENATCHEE, Wa. | Firefighters were deployed to various parts of Benton and Franklin Counties for multiple brush fires burning at the same time, with reports of up to five different incidents.

Some of the fires were located on Case Road, County Road 12, Roth Rock and in Prosser, Washington.

Fire crews were starting to get a handle on the wildfires. Due to multiple TAC channels owned/managed by the Lower Columbia Fire Department, we were unable to capture all of the locations and assets information.
