South Aberdeen fire on county property is Fourth this month

Crews with the Aberdeen fire department broke apart a smoldering fire off of Front Street in South Aberdeen Sunday morning. It’s difficult to tell if the campfire was in the middle of a makeshift campsite or if it was just a large fire made from old Cedar. No one was around when first responders arrived, no injuries were reported. Some trails were carved out of the heavy brush, fire crews were able to walk right to the fire on a trail.

Battalion Chief Dave Golding tells us the fire is the Fourth this month in the area between the Chehalis river and Front Street. Since the fire was in the shadow, and several cut ends, of a large cedar stump it may have been smoldering there for a while and picked up with the wind, or it may have been from a recent fire.

Sunday’s fire was about 30 feet away from the site of another response, and about 50 feet from several campsites carved out of heavy brush and driftwood on city and county-owned property along the Chehalis River.
