There is a little bit more information available on yesterday's brush fire near Saltese Road and Sullivan. The fire was about 100 feet by 50 feet when firefighters arrived, then blowing embers ignited a second fire about 100 yards away, said Spokane Valley Fire Department assistant fire marshal Bill Clifford. The department was assisted by the Department of Natural Resources and the Bureau of Land Management in putting out the fire.
Clifford said that witnesses saw three teenage boys in the area just before the fire started. Anyone with information on the fire is asked to call the department at 928-1700.
The Spokane Valley Fire Department is responding to a brush fire in the area of Saltese Road and Neidham just off Sullivan Road. The first crew on the scene reported fire in the brush and trees.
2:16 p.m. update: The fire department is now asking for the Sheriff's Office to provide traffic control, so it sounds like some roads will be shut down. Avoid that area for now.
2:19 p.m. update: Saltese is shut down between Sullivan and Conklin. Fire crews report the fire is in the tree tops and is moving north.
3:16 p.m. update: Fire crews said the fire is contained and they are in “mop up” mode.
