Firefighters tackle spot fires on I-182

Firefighters were dispatched to several spots along Interstate 182 on Saturday evening to battle what initial reports indicated were fireworks-related fires.

The first report came about 8:30 p.m. at I-182 and Queensgate Drive in Richland, but by 9 p.m. firefighters also were being sent to the Interstate 82 interchange and spots in between.

Police reportedly were looking for a pickup truck that might be connected to the fires.

Firefighters from several local jurisdictions were called to battle the blazes.
