Bumping River Road was elevated to a Level 3 “go now” evacuation on Tuesday night because of spotting from the Schneider Springs Fire.
Yakima Valley Emergency Management said the order covers the Bumping River Road area from State Route 410 west toward Bumping Lake. Residents are advised to take family, pets, and important documents and evacuate the area immediately.
The fire is burning 18 miles northwest of Naches. It was 94,206 acres with 14% containment Tuesday morning. That was an increase of 1,400 acres from the prior day. A total of 758 people are assigned to the fire.
In an update shared on the fire information Facebook page, Joe Tone, operations section chief for the Schneider Springs Fire, spoke about efforts to monitor the fire so it didn’t establish any large runs toward the Bumping River.
