Firefighters Roy Stanton and Mark O’Neil at wildland fire.

Orcas Fire responded to a reported wild land fire near the Westsound Fire Station on Saturday, March 22. Despite winter weather conditions and the fact the fire was burning on a wet marsh, over three-quarters of an acre was scorched before firefighters were able to knock it down. The fire moved quickly through dead grass and brush, briefly threatening a boat barn and debris next to the structure. There were no injuries or structural damage.
