illegal burn doused The hill above the intersection at140th Avenue NE and Woodinville-Snohomish Road, which was illegally logged about three weeks ago, was the site Wednesday of a large illegal burn, bringing firefighters out to douse the fire. The property owner had permission to demolish the residence there, which was piled up with the debris from the logging, set on fire, and then abandoned. The fire district will be fining the property owner $500 to $1,000 for putting out the fire, though the property owner is unknown at this time.
