Fire Started By Cigarette
No One Hurt
CLARKSTON, WA – A cigarette is to blame for a fire in Asotin County yesterday. Asotin County Firefighters rushed to the 1100 block of 16th street just after 4:00 pm. The fire started on the deck of a home, then spread to the dry grass below and out to a hillside behind the home. Through the mutual aid program, Clarkston and Lewiston Firefighters rushed to help as well. Despite wind pushing the flames, firefighters were able to extinguish the fire before it got to any other property or jumped Libby Street. No one was hurt and the home wasn’t badly damaged.
