The Yakima Fire Department handled three fires over four hours Monday, including a kitchen fire that destroyed two units in an apartment building. The string of fires started a little after 9 a.m. with a brush fire on the Yakima Greenway, according to a news release from the department. That fire burned about 3,600 square feet of heavy brush near the Valley Mall Boulevard exit on Interstate 82. An hour later, a shed was reported on fire in the 1100 block of North Second Street, firefighters said. The department says the shed was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, but quick action kept it from spreading to the home nearby.
