DALLESPORT - A 2,000-acre blaze threatening homes in Klickitat County led to the mobilization yesterday, Sunday, of firefighting assistance under the Washington State Fire Services Resource Mobilization Plan in support of local firefighters working to contain the Horsethief Butte Fire, located approximately three miles northeast of Dallesport.
The fire started yesterday and its cause remains unknown.
Though homes and infrastructure have been threatened by the flames, none were lost as of yesterday, according to state officials.
Mobilization specialists from the Fire Protection Bureau have ordered 10 wildland engines and two tenders to supplement the resources already fighting the fire.
