Brush Fires Contained

Both the Finley fire which started this afternoon near Meals Road and the fire on Jumpoff Joe in Kennewick this evening are now contained. Firefighters continue mop up work.

The Finley fire burned more than 500 acres today. The cause has yet to be determined. The Jumpoff Joe fire was started by a lightning strike.

Firefighters tell us that lightning has also started some small brush fires on the Hanford reservation.
