“The wind picked up and carried the flames over near some adjoining timberland,” Raymond Fire Chief Todd Strozyk told the Herald. “It got out of his control and we responded. The DNR (Department of Natural Resources) had some crews there.
Chief Strozyk said the fire was contained to under and one acre. “The terrain was really steep and rough. We didn’t have any vehicles to fight that fire,” Strozyk said. “The DNR had specialized vehicles to fight that fire.”
Pacific County Fire District No. 3 responded with two engines and two tenders and the Raymond Fire Department brought along two support vehicles. The DNR responded with wild land trucks.
The DNR did not leave the site until around midnight.
