Firefighters respond to three lightning-caused wildfires


Forest Service firefighters responded to three small lightning-caused wildfires burning in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and also assisting Washington State Department of Natural Resources fire crews on fires burning on state managed lands in Northcentral Washington.

The 10-acre Tommy Creek fire is burning approximately 30 miles Northwest of Entiat. Today, around 30-35 firefighters, with helicopter support, have been working on this fire. The fire is burning in timber, down logs, and brush. The other two fires are much smaller and burning near Cle Elum and Naches.
