The Colombian

A renter whose home and belongings were destroyed in the Tunnel Five Fire in July is suing BNSF Railway, alleging its operation caused the wildfire in Skamania County.

Lance Douglas Brooks was one of about 1,000 residents displaced when the fire tore through 500 acres, destroying 10 structures, most of them residences. The fire started July 2 and flamed for days in Underwood, roughly 2 miles west of White Salmon.

The lawsuit and demand for a jury trial was filed Monday in Skamania County Superior Court. Brooks is seeking damages in excess of $100,000.
