A 911 call goes out and Grandview firefighters show up to put a blaze out on Bethany Road.
But like many structure fires in Grandview, they can't do it alone.
After they arrived on scene, crews called for assistance from Sunnyside, Yakima County Fire District Five and Prosser.
“We always need the help. It's difficult to fight a fire safely with limited numbers of people. We need to make sure there's enough people for safety,” Grandview Fire Captain Del Whitmore said.
To make sure firefighters can get there sooner, Grandview and Sunnyside are working out a deal between fire departments, which would automatically call Sunnyside and Grandview crews to respond to blazes in either city.
“We would not have to wait for somebody to actually get on the scene to say they need the extra resources. Those extra resources would be coming in on the initial 9-1-1 dispatch,” Sunnyside Fire Chief Ken Anderson said,
