Swather fire extinguished

A swather and brush on fire at Independence and Lantz Roads brought just two firefighters out from Yakima County District #5 at 4:01 p.m. Saturday. The fire was extinguished with no extenuating circumstances.

Sunnyside firefighters were called out on Wednesday, Aug. 23, on a grass fire at Milepost 66 on I-82 and checked out a report of an odor of smoke this past Friday at a residence on Southwest Crescent Avenue.

From Aug. 23 at 12:55 p.m. to this morning at 1:48 a.m., they also made 13 aid calls, transporting six people to hospitals, transferred six patients to other facilities and responded to an automatic alarm.
