Brush Fire Burns Parts Of Hill On SR-509 Near SW 128th
According to BTB Contributor Jim Branson, a fire burned up part of a hill on the east side of SR-509 Friday afternoon around 3-3:30pm:
North Highline fire crew put out a brush fire beside SR-509, a block or two north of 128th.
Two trucks responded, and the fire seemed to be out when I drove by and took the pictures at 3:55.
Winds were from the northwest at the time, about 9 mph.
The picture is looking east.
The burn pattern seems to fit the scenario of someone pitching a cigarette beside the road, and the flames spread uphill and toward the southeast, pushed by the wind, spreading out up the hill.
A small outbuilding may also have been burned partially.
