DNR To Watch Hartland Fire Site

Washington Department of Natural Resources crews will patrol the area of Monday’s Hartland Fire north of Dallesport for the next three days for any hotspots and smoke.  High Prairie Fire Chief Tim Darland says the DNR strike team Wednesday re-gridded the burned area for any remaining hot spots, and two locations were identified and quickly mopped up.  Later in the day DNR was comfortable with mop up efforts and made the decision to remove the hose lays that were initially placed to fight the fire.  DNR will patrol the area for the next three days for any hot spots or smoke.  If, after that time, no signs of fire are observed, DNR will call the fire “Out”.  The Hartland Fire burned 14 acres.
