2 brush fires sparked at the same time near I-5 in Lacey

Two brush fires sparked nearly at the same time this afternoon on I-5 near Lacey.

One occurred near Carpenter Road and the other near Marvin Road. Both fires appeared to be in the median.

Lacey Fire District 3 was on scene of both fires at around 5:30 pm. They created a large plume of smoke that could be seen throughout Lacey and Olympia.

These are two of nearly 10 different brush fires that have ignited along I-5 this month. The dry conditions make it easy for a cigarette butt or other piece of flammable material thrown out of a vehicle to start a fire.
