Incident Photo for the Vantage Highway Fire

The Vantage Highway fire started on August 1, 2022 at 1205 PM PDT. The fire was originally reported five miles west of Vantage. This incident started during "Red Flag" weather conditions. A Red Flag Warning bringing warm temperatures, very low humidity, and strong winds combined to produce extreme fire behavior. Additional resources were required to suppress the fire as it continued to grow rapidly due to the passage of a cold front with gusty winds. A Washington State Department of Natural Resources Type 3 Incident Management Team took command of the fire on August 4 and soon after transitioned to a Type 2 Incident Management Team equipped with more resources to battle the expanding incident.

On August 5 at 6AM Jeff Dimke's NW Team 12 (Type 2 Team) assumed command of the fire.
