Brush Fires In The Dalles On Monday

Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue crews dealt with a pair of brush fires in the west part of The Dalles alongside Interstate 84 on Monday afternoon.  According to MCFR, firefighters were originally dispatched to a fire behind the Jack In The Box restaurant, and then had to deal with a nearby second fire behind Fred Meyer and the Super 8 Motel.  MCFR was assisted by crews from Dallesport and Mosier to put the fires out.  Jay Wood of MCFR says a power line arc due to high winds probably started the original fire, with embers carried by the wind starting the second fire.
