80-acre fire at JBLM under control

A fire at a Joint Base Lewis-McChord range spread to about 80 acres Sunday, and did not damage any structures.

The base said via Twitter that the fire at Range 81 was visible from Yelm and Roy. Tank Bridge Road and Lewis Lake were closed as crews responded.

The fire was under control, and about 60 acres had been extinguished, with 10 to 20 still burning as of about 9 p.m.

Further details were not immediately available.
