McBee Command WA-SPD-000253. ICT3. 2 miles SW of Benton City, WA. Start 7/14. Full Suppression. Cause: undetermined. 1,700 acres (+1,700). Grass. Moderate fire behavior. Residences and structures threatened.

Lists fires (of any size) that singly utilize Monitor, Confine or Point Zone Protection suppression strategies, or use Multiple Suppression Strategies (which may also include a Full Suppression component).

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
With low pressure moving into the area from the north beginning today through the weekend, an increase in initial attack activity can be expected from lightning activity. Although large fire potential remains seasonally low it is on the rise from the warming and drying trend of previous days. Gusty conditions associated with thunderstorms will be of concern in the areas with light and flashy fuels.
