Crews quickly contain Dishman wildfire

A five-acre brush fire in the Dishman Hills area was quickly contained Friday – the anniversary of last year’s Valley View Fire.

No structures were threatened, and no one was injured in the flames that erupted about 6 p.m. at Camp Caro, said Capt. Jeff Bordwell, a spokesman for the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

Spokane Valley firefighters and members the Department of Natural Resources planned to stay on scene into the night to make sure the blaze did not flare back up, officials said.

“With the wind being pretty calm we are doing quite well,” Bordwell said. The cause is under investigation. Lightening went through the area a couple days ago, but he was not sure if that caused it.

Camp Caro is a day hiking area with no overnight camping. The area is about 60 acres of natural terrain.
