Yakima sub – this will affect Pasco lineups
>> At MP 114 the fire is approximately 600 yards from the track. I have briefed with operating in Pasco and requested the fire train. At this location we have an open deck bridge that is directly in the path of the fire. DNR firefighters have set up a sprinkler on the bridge and estimate the fire reaching our tracks between noon and 1400.
> B&B and section are in route to board the fire train at Pomona. I have requested Auburn hold trains until the fire train gets out here so we can put down retardant on the open deck bridge at MP 114 as soon as the fire train is on site.
State incident commander is in the loop on our plans with fire train coming out of Pasco.
