Several fire districts and the state Department of Natural Resources were fighting fires in Tenino, the Rochester area and near Shelton, a DNR spokeswoman said Sunday.
And all three fires started about 2 p.m. Sunday, said Janet Pearce.
Here’s how the DNR described each fire:
Tenino: The Crane Street fire had burned about 20 acres, including one structure and several vehicles, as of 6 p.m., she said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the structure was a home or an outbuilding, Pearce said. Homes remain threatened, she said. A Thurston County dispatcher said two firefighters suffered minor injuries from the blaze.
Rochester area: The Teague Road fire was burning in 40-year-old timber and structures were threatened, she said. It had reached 30 acres by about 7:30 p.m., DNR said via Twitter.
Shelton area: The fire, known as Mill 5, was threatening a mill, Pearce said. A location was not immediately available.
