Officials are seeking persons of interest as they believe the Nakia Creek Fire was caused by humans.

The Nakia Creek Fire grew from about 150 acres to 2,000 acres in a matter of hours Sunday, forcing thousands to evacuate. The fire is located nine miles northeast of Camas in the Yacolt Burn State Forest.

Late Monday, the Clark County Fire Marshall issued a statement asking for the public’s help finding two men and two women connected to a white or light-colored Subaru seen on a ridge near the fire Sunday, Oct. 9, around 2:30 p.m.

“We are looking for what we believe is a white or light-colored Subaru vehicle,” said Assistant Fire Marshall Curtis Eavenson. “Based on witness statements, we also believe there were two men and two women connected with this vehicle.”

They did not elaborate on the exact connection to the fire but released a video with images of the vehicle asking anyone who recognized it or the people connected to it, or who has any information on the investigation to call the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office at  (564) 397-3320.
