Grays Harbor wildfire burns over 60 acres

May 6, 2013

Warm, dry weather over the weekend helped move fire in Grays Harbor and throughout the state. 10 wildfires started over the weekend scorching more than 100 acres and citizens are urged to use caution. Even with very few warm days this spring, never under estimate the ability of grass and brush to catch on fire.

The C-Line Wildfire was reported early Sunday morning approximately 8 miles northwest of Littlerock.

The fire burned over 60 acres on state trust lands. Some recreation areas closed in the vicinity of the fire. Winds pushing from the east moved the fire through the area.
Smoke was visible from Olympia.

The state Department of Natural Resources says about 80 people, several engines and a helicopter were fighting the fire Sunday.

Karen Ripley of the Department of Natural Resources there have been no evacuations or injuries from the fire.

The cause of this fire is under investigation.
