Peterson Lake Brush Fire
A brush fire forced the closure of Highway 104 on Friday, September 9th. The fire consumed approximately 7 acres of brush and forest, including some PUD-owned timberland.
Crews from Jefferson County, Clallam County, and the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) were called in to contain the fire which originated on DNR property near Discovery Bay at mile post 2 on Highway 104.
The fire spread from DNR property onto PUD property near Peterson Lake. Approximately 2 acres trees and underbrush on PUD property was burned before the fire was contained.
Dry and windy conditions led to two additional spot fires in the area in the days after the initial fire extinguished. All fires in the area have now been contained.
