Firefighters working to prevent Norse Peak Fire from crossing over SR 410
NACHES, Wash.- The Yakima Valley is covered in smoke as the Norse Peak fire has reached over 17,000 acres burned.
The heavy smoke may be bad for people in the valley, but it has helped keep fire activity to a minimum as firefighters trying to keep the blaze from the closing over State Route 410.
They are cutting down dried trees and brush along the north side of 410 to make sure that doesn't happen.
Firefighters recommend for people to limit outdoor activities while smoke is in the air.
They will be holding a community meeting at the Nile Valley Community Center at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
