Fireworks caused a small brushfire on Maury Island’s Kingsbury Road last Tuesday night, but the flames were mostly extinguished by the time firefighters arrived.
Vashon Island Fire & Rescue Assistant Chief Bob Larsen said that the “very small” fire broke out right along the beach around 10 p.m., just before the fireworks show in the harbor began. It could be seen by many Independence Day revelers who lined the banks of Quartermaster Harbor, but Larsen said it was minor. No injuries or property damage was reported.
The fire was the only incident that day besides a morning aid call.
“It was really quiet,” Larsen said.
