A rash of brush fires across Clark and Cowlitz counties led to action from multiple local agencies including a temporary burn ban that ran for a few days in Cowlitz.

On March 20 Clark County Fire District 3 announced that it had responded to several wildland fires over two days in the county. At about 6:30 p.m., March 19, FD3 crews responded to the 20300 block of Northeast 242nd Avenue, southeast of Venersborg, finding a brush fire about an acre in size burning at the location. Crews had the fire extinguished by 8 p.m. and ruled that it was likely the result of a controlled burn that reignited.
