Benton County Fire District 2 responded to the blaze at 9:30 a.m., sending four engines, a tender and a dozer, said Fire Chief Ron Duncan. Firefighters contained the fire within an hour.
Duncan wasn’t able to explain where the fire started, but it was not next to the highway.
No one was injured and no structures were threatened. A Benton County PUD power pole was ignited, and doused by firefighters on scene.
