Everett Fire

The threat of brush fires is back for people in Everett and the surrounding area. More and more calls are coming in for brush fires due to the lack of recent rain and high temperatures. This fire along the Lowell-Snohomish River Road appeared to be started by fireworks. Here are a few photos of the crew from Everett Fire Station 4 handling it. Please be extra careful. These things can spread quickly.

Fireworks in dry grass directly under high tension power lines is a really bad idea.
