Speaking from the scene of Washington state’s largest fire this summer, Rex Reed, Incident Team Commander on the Taylor Bridge Fire in central Washington, warns that lightning is expected Saturday in the same area where more than 22,000 acres have burned in a wildfire that broke out on Monday.

“We need to be able to focus on this fire and any natural-caused fires…” Reed said. Fires caused by people are the last thing we need, so please be extra careful this weekend to prevent any more wildfires.
