Lake Ballinger Fire Update


Here is a quick update on the Lake Ballinger fire case. Police commander Doug Hansen tell us that the Mountlake Terrace Police Department have sent charging documents to the prosecutor on a subject they believe is responsible for the fire.

If you’re not familiar with the case here is a little background. Last August, someone left a BBQ on the island in the middle of Lake Ballinger. The vegetation on the island caught fire and, because the island is made of peat, the island smoldered for days.
