Fire crews are on the scene of a brush fire near Larch Corrections Center.
The fire was reported just after 11 a.m. It is on the L-1500 Road about a quarter mile east of the Four Corners intersection in the Yacolt Burn State Forest. That puts it about a mile southeast of Larch Corrections Center.
According to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian, firefighters arrived to find the fire was about 30 feet square and was near the road, not in heavy timber.
Firefighters were attacking the fire and hoped to control it quickly.
After nearly a week of hot weather, Western Washington wildlands are drier and more combustible than usual. The Yacolt Burn State Forest is under a red flag warning, meaning that fire conditions are dangerous or about to be that way.

I know EXACTLY where that was.
Right where the kids party with their campfires all the time.
Why-o-why are people so clueless?
My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body... But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... WOW! What a Wild Ride!
ExCabSwap: The wind there looks horrible... Still worth it haha

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
