(Kelso, WA)  --  Three Vancouver men are being ordered to pay the state of Washington more than two-million dollars in firefighting costs after they admitted responsibility for a 110-acre wildfire near Woodland.  Monday, a Cowlitz County Superior Court judge ordered Nathan Taylor, his brother Adrian Taylor, and Michael Estrada Cardenas to pay two-point-three million dollars to the state Department of Natural Resources.  The trio told authorities they started a small fire during target practice in the Lewis River Valley forest in June 2015, and that there may have been an "ember or two" remaining after they thought the fire had been put out.  Two of the men have also been sentenced to community service and the third will be sentenced later this month.
