All Too Familiar – Work Spark Causes Brush Fire

 

A spark from a work crew using a cutting tool in the parking lot of Yakima Cinema on North 16th Avenue is being blamed for yesterday's big brush fire. Deputy Yakima Fire Marshal Brandon Dorenbush says many homes in the area where spared from the fire because of the efforts of firefighters but others he says had created a green barrier around their home.
