Rimrock fire burning west of Spokane

Fire crews are responding to a wildfire burning about 10-15 acres west of Spokane in the Palisades Park area.

Smoke can be seen from throughout the Spokane area.

Roads are closed at Greenwood and Rimrock.

Just after 2:00 pm Friday, fire crews issued Level 1 evacuation orders for people living on Grove Road north from Greenwood Houston. Washington's Department of Natural Resources says the fire is torching in the tree tops and making a run. Their main concern is spot fires.

70 firefighters are fighting the flames from the air and the ground. They're working in rough terrain.
