Mason County (WA) Fire Destroys Half-Dozen Homes

A fast-moving wildfire in rural Mason County burned at least eight structures, including at least six homes, and scorched about 150 acres Friday, reports q13fox.com.

State Department of Natural Resources’ Joe Shramek said late Friday night that there were no injuries and that everyone had been safely evacuated.

But he said there was zero percent containment on the fire. But he said the night was calm and they hope to get better containment of the fire Saturday.

Mason County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling said six of the eight structures destroyed were homes. He said they’ve had to evacuate several homes and a lot of cattle, horses and other animals.

An additional 20 homes were threatened at one point Friday, he said.
