Enumclaw fire crews were on the scene of the fire in the area of Kanaskat-Palmer State Park.
A brush fire was reported on Elk Run Golf Course in Maple Valley at about 2:50 p.m.
South Whidbey firefighters fought what they called the largest brushfire on the South End since the 1990s today. According to Mike Cotton, deputy chief for South Whidbey Fire/EMS, it scorched about 15 acres of grassland, damaged power lines and power poles, and threatened a number of buildings. Multiple island and state agencies responded to the emergency, it caused heavy traffic delays along Highway 525 and even resulted in some residents leaving their homes as a precautionary measure.
Extra sailings are planned for the Clinton-to-Mukilteo ferry route during the nighttime closure of Deception Pass Bridge later this month. The Washington State Department of Transportation made the announcement Friday. The added runs are intended to accommodate traffic to and from Whidbey Island during a week that may otherwise leave some motorists stranded for hours.
