Tri-Cities firefighters say they’re already preparing for wildfire season. And with our wetter-than-usual winter and forecasted early, dry summer, they say you should prepare too. They said folks don’t have to wait for the snow to melt to start working on a plan of action. More water means more grass, something Fire chief Lonnie Click says he’s seen before. "Most of the time when that occurs we have a pretty significant grassland fire-season,” Click said. “We're setting records in March, we're setting records in February, so of course that leaves us concerned.” Click is the chief over Benton County Fire District 1 (BCFD1), and says more grass means more fires because grasses growing wild around the Tri-Cities won’t stay green for long.
