TONASKET — Firefighters responded to a fire southeast of Lyman Lake Friday evening, U.S. Forest Service officials said in a news release.
The Lost Fire is less than an acre, burning in grass and timber about 30 miles southeast of Tonasket.
It was caused by Thursday’s lightning storm and found during a reconnaissance flight Friday afternoon. Crews are mopping up today.
It’s common for lightning caused fires to take several days to show up following a storm, the news release said.
The state Department of Natural Resources and Forest Service firefighters continue to work together to respond to fires as they are reported. Another reconnaissance flight is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Call 911 to report a wildfire.
