Fire Contained as Temperatures Heat Up

Firefighters contained a brush fire in East Valley in just 10 to 15 minutes Sunday morning and avoided possibilities of a large, dangerous blaze with temperatures heating up.

The fire, as reported by the Yakima Herald Republic, started shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday near the corner of Roza Hill Drive and Solar Lane and reported to be caused by humans with the exact source still under investigation.

This 10-acre fire is a reminder of the fire season now well under way and how everyone needs to be extra careful with Independence Day this week.

Fires started by fireworks can be anticipated this year, again, but all are urged to keep children and fireworks supervised at all times with firefighters on high alert because of rising temperatures and possible winds.
