SNOHOMISH COUNTY — Crews from Snohomish County worked to contain a 25-acre brush fire Thursday near Stanwood.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office sent their helicopter SnoHAWK10 with a water bucket shortly after 5:00 p.m.

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources took over the scene Thursday evening.

Crews planned to monitor the fire overnight.

A Snohomish County fire official said the brush fire may have been a slash burn that got out of control.

    I live very near there & when I heard the many firetrucks, one that carries foam rather than water, I thought it was one of the many cabins out this way. It's a heavily treed area & with no rain until last night, it could've been much more serious.
