Firefighters control Tenino brush fire


TENINO, Wash. - Firefighters controlled a brush fire Sunday afternoon in Tenino.

The High Valley Lane brush fire raced through a couple of acres of land.

According to investigators, the fire started when a legal burn got out of control and east winds helped fuel the fire.

Responding ground and air crews were able to control the fire.

Investigators told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that three homes were in danger, but are no longer in danger.

“Yeah, there are nice ones up on the hill, and there’s a lot that could get involved if they don’t get it contained,’ said Tenino resident Peggy Haase.

Crews remained at the scene to douse hot spots.
