Kaner Flat Fire
 
There was a small (1/4 acre) fire in the Kaner Flats (676) trail area last nite. At about 4pm 7/22/13 some motorcycles that were riding the area noticed heavy smoke. The investigated and found the fire. They reported it to FS personal in the area. Fire responders from the FS Naches District were on site by 5pm and the fire was contained by 6:30 pm. Mop up operations continued into the later hours. Initial reports were "human caused".

Please be careful. Last year was bad enough and this year the fire conditions are worse.

For current Naches Ranger District Campfire restrictions call 509-653-1401 M-F during business hours. If a ban happens the area's are well signed as to what is allowed/not allowed.

Good thing the motorcyclists were there to spot and report the fire before it got bigger.

The fire was reported as "human caused". The investigation revealed spent shell casings (large caliber), a cigarette butt, and quad tracks.

Ok... human caused and human reported and human extinguished.

In other words: bad humans caused it, good humans reported it, and super humans put it out.

We are all human.
