High fire danger halts road grading

SPOKANE, Wash. - Risk of wildfires due to hot and dry weather throughout the Inland Northwest has indefinitely halted road grading in the Spokane County Works Department's four road districts.

A substantial amount of rainfall would be needed for road crews to be able to grade dirt and gravel roads. A single spark from a grader blade could start a fire that destroys a home and surrounding properties.
