HIGHWAY 241, Wash. - A brush fire sparked by a motorcycle accident, which injured two people, closed SR 241 Thursday afternoon.
Drivers were being re-routed and smoke was visible over the hillside.
"I do not know the size of the fire but I see many fire companies involved in fighting it," said Benton County Deputy Brad Klippert. "So, it must be increasing in size. It's a significant fire if they're going to shut down traffic both ways."
The fire began about 8 miles from where our video was shot.
Washington State Patrol said the two riding the motorcycle lost control and both of them were ejected. They were taken to a local hospital, then one of them to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
