Brush Fire spotted near Lake Holiday

Washington State Department of Natural Resources helicopter No. 6 drew water from Doyle Pond near Lake Holiday on SR-302 to fight a 2-acre brush fire Sept. 7 on SW Hunter Lane in south Kitsap County, just northwest of the KP 360 Trails park. The crew spotted the fire while on a training flight from Bremerton and landed nearby to unload its firefighting crew before dropping water from the air. South Kitsap Fire and Rescue was already responding to several incidents at the time and called for mutual aid from surrounding districts. KP Fire District 16 was also responding to multiple fires on the KP at the time. The fires came at a time of warmer than normal temperatures just a week before smoke from wildfires in Eastern Washington, Oregon and California blanketed the region for several days
