Authorities advise that if you see either inmate, to not approach him and call 911 immediately.

The Head Water Fire has burned 100 acres and has the following resources assigned: 2 hand crews, 6 engines, and 3 helicopters for a total of 123 personnel. Petrovskiy was serving a 33-month sentence for auto theft.

The facility notified local and state law enforcement, Oregon State Patrol and activated Inmate Recovery Teams. His expected release date had been tentatively set for December 8, 2018.

Munter was convicted on charges of second-degree assault and second-degree theft out of Snohomish County and began serving his six-year sentence on June 28.

Two other Washington state inmates escaped from a work crew two months ago. His earliest expected release date had been May 2020.

Both inmates were held at the Olympic Corrections Center near Forks. The two prisoners were not located.

The two are described as wearing khaki trousers or grey sweat trousers, grew sweat shirt, khaki coat and khaki beanie hats.

They both committed their crimes in Washington's Snohomish County, the department said.
