Fire crews in Yakima responded to four separate fires Thursday morning, one that did more than a million dollars in damage at a warehouse. YFD says all are considered suspicious. Crews first were called out to a brush fire at the Yakima Greenway at 1:41 a.m. 911 callers said trees and brush were burning near HWY 12 and 16th Avenue. Just 10 minutes after responding the the fire at the Greenway, crews spotted a fire in the pallets of cardboard at Fruit Packers Supply Inc. on 16th Avenue. The fire knocked down power lines and damaged transformers, causing power outages for areas of the city of Yakima.
