QUINCY, Wash. — The right lane of eastbound I-90 has reopened near the Wild Horse Monument by Vantage Bridge after crews extinguished a roadside wildfire.

An alert from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said firefighters were parked along the road while they put the flames out. No evacuations were issued.

The fire burned around 40 acres, and required a Department of Natural Resources helicopter to help fight the fire. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
