Fire at Benton Franklin Fairgrounds

Winds reignite a debris fire this morning at the Benton Franklin fairgrounds.

The Kennewick Fire Department says the fire started yesterday afternoon but fire fighters were dispatched to the same location around 3 AM today when strong winds caused the embers to reignite.

It took firefighters all morning to contain the fire.

Once the fire was totally out a Benton County fair crew took over using large machinery to pull apart the pile and comb through it piece by piece to ensure another fire will not start.
