Fire Season Already? (VIDEO) Record Temps Coming
Kennewick Fire crews and police were busy Tuesday evening, fighting a brush fire in the 1900 block of Canal Drive.
Authorities didn't say what triggered the blaze, but that it did consume some acreage and threatened to move fast if not brought under control. This fire comes as the Tr-Cities are poised to likely break some single-day temperature records especially this weekend and Monday.
Temps are predicted to perhaps exceed 112 degrees. That, coupled with breezy conditions and dry ground cover and brush point out the need for people to be very careful with anything that could trigger a blaze.
A spent cigarette, dumping barbeque ashes before they cold, even a spark from mowing or working in a field can trigger off a fire.
Do be careful! No one was hurt in this fire, no reports of any property damage.
