Firefighters Battle Lightning Sparked Wildfires near Rimrock Lake
Firefighters are battling multiple lightning sparked fires in Yakima County about 8 miles south of Rimrock Lake.
The Conrad Complex Fires is estimated to be about 300 to 400 acres and is burning in a wilderness area that is a popular place to go horseback riding. No structures are threatened at this time.
Forest Service fire crews say steep terrain and dry fuel conditions are making efforts to fight this fire difficult.
Due to the potential for large fire growth, the public is asked to comply with local road closures.
The fires were started by a thunderstorm Saturday night.
