The Benton County Wildland Strike Team was sent this week to battle the Highway 141 Fire near White Salmon.
The team included from firefighters from fire districts 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Benton County. And Kennewick sent four firefighters, Rusty Bachman, Greg Browning, Scott McLellan and Andrew Striebeck.
That fire was declared a state mobilization Wednesday by the Washington State Emergency Management.
Kennewick Fire Marshal Mark Yaden issued a news release Friday noting that members of his team and others in the Tri-Cities have been active this summer on other state mobilizations, including last month's Taylor Bridge Fire near Cle Elum.
