About two hours ago, WA DNR sent some personnel and resources to assist as mutual aid in Grant County.  The fire was said to be burning in sage and grass.  Conditions have been dry and weather has been somewhat unfavorable, making it right for fire season to make its move and more of a challenge to Fire Officials often promotion Prevention messages to the public.

Those assigned to this wildfire incident were WA DNR CREW 33, 6201 and a BLM engine #6695, assisted by multiple Fire Districts.
