Yet another grass fire occurred along the stretch of I-82 between Sunnyside and Grandview yesterday afternoon. At approximately 2 p.m. Yakima County Fire District #5, station 14 responded to a fire at milepost 71. Station 13 assisted in extinguishing the blaze that is believed to have been caused by a motor home that lost a tire. The wheel sparked, igniting the grass along the interstate. The fire began encroaching upon structures on nearby North Hornby Road, but fire crews were able to stop it before the flames were able to ignite the property. Captain Tony Castillo (right) and fireman A.J. Barrera (left) remained near the property line to ensure hot spots would not re-ignite
