Fire crews from 2 counties hit brush fires
The Kitsap Sun reported that Mason County fire districts attacked the southern fire Thursday afternoon while Kitsap County districts hit the northern fire adjacent to the airport. The fires covered about 2 acres each. Fire officials are concerned about danger with multiple large wildfires burning in Eastern Washington.
The newspaper said dozens of drivers on State Highway 3 were trapped for more than an hour once fire crews and their trucks began attacking the flames on both sides. The fires were within a half mile of each other.
The cause was undetermined.
