Fires In the West
August 24, 2015 1 Comment
A massive wildfire raging in north-central Washington has become the largest is the state’s history.
The blaze measured overnight at just over 400 square miles, Okanogan County Fire spokesman Rick Isaacson said on Monday.
He called the record unfortunate, particularly due to it coming so early in the wildfire season.
“It’s only August 24,” Mr Isaacson said. “In our district we could see this go clear to the first of November.”
