• Worker killed in logging accident at Snoqualmie Tree Farm


    SNOQUALMIE, Wash. - A worker died from injuries received while operating logging equipment on the Snoqualmie Tree Farm.

    On Tuesday at about 2 p.m., firefighters from the Snoqualmie Fire Department were called to a report that a logging worker had been seriously hurt while on the job at a site 26 miles into the tree farm.

    Fire crews were escorted to the site by the Campbell Global Timber Management security division. The trip took about an hour because of the rough terrain.

    When crews arrived, they found the victim about 500 yards down a steep embankment.

    The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the investigation was turned over to the King County Sheriff's Office.

    According to the City of Snoqualmie, the Snoqualmie Tree Farm is 90,000 acres, which is nearly twice the size of Seattle and stretches from Snoqualmie Falls nearly 25 miles north into Snohomish County and nearly as far east from Duvall and Carnation.
