Lind Fire

The Lind Fire burned south of the town on Thursday and was fully contained Friday. 

OLYMPIA — “Washington is experiencing its worst fire activity of 2022,” according to the state Department of Natural Resources, but the state is still having a comparatively low-intensity fire season.

“To date we’ve had 293 fires, we are just in the first week of August,” said Hilary Franz, DNR’s commissioner of public lands, during a Friday wildfire briefing.
