Homeless Camps Empty

Empty Tent

It's now illegal to camp overnight on the Yakima Greenway, and it appears the homeless who had been camping there are aware of the change.

Yakima County Commissioners passed an ordinance yesterday -- after several fires broke out at homeless camps a few months ago.

We visited one of the areas that was populated by campers, and it appeared that most had packed up and left -- leaving empty tents behind.

Several homeless shelters say they've seen a small number of new people check in last night, some of which were campers.
