Fires Keeping Firefighters Busy In Central Washington

WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — Firefighters worked overnight to protect homes from a 500-acre wildfire near Wenatchee.

A dispatcher says they prevented any more structures from being lost. One outbuilding was destroyed over the weekend and residents of nearly 200 homes were told to evacuate Sunday.

Rains that fell in the Seattle area Sunday night didn’t make it over the Cascades, and the National Weather Service says the front will bring gusty winds Monday that could fan Eastern Washington wildfires.

In addition to the fire near Wenatchee in Chelan County, fires started by lightning over the weekend are burning sagebrush and grass near Grand Coulee Dam in Douglas and Grant counties and near Odessa in Lincoln County.

A fire that started last week continues to burn near White Salmon in Klickitat County.
