Firefighters have nearly contained the Harlan Landing fire that started near Selah Sunday afternoon. Selah Fire Department acting Lt. Rob Messer with Station 26 says the fire has burned about 660 acres and is nearly 90 percent contained. He tells KIT News. “Not a single structure was lost. Not a single firefighter was injured. Not a single fire engine was damaged and everyone went home safe.” He says firefighters are dousing hot spots and hope for full containment later Today.  The actual cause of the fire reported at about 1:00 p.m. Sunday remains under investigation but he says it started in a homeless encampment near Golf Course Loop. Messer says the topography challenged firefighters. He says many times they had to wait for the fire to burn towards them because they couldn’t reach hoses up the steep Selah Ridge. Firefighters remain on the scene Today.
