WSDOT reopens SR 27 in Mica, fire contained

MICA, Wash. — Several fires forced Washington State Department to close State Route 27 in Mica Wednesday, but it has since reopened.

WSDOT temporarily closed SR 27 from Palouse Highway to Dishman-Mica Road due to several fires near the road. Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said the fire grew to about 15 acres, but was under control.
