Fire fanned by winds, burns Wenatchee Townhouse

Chelan County Fire District One spokesman, Rick Isaacson says the fire was fanned by winds into nearby arborvitae and then into some trees before spreading to apartment building. The flames extended into the attic of the dwelling causing significant interior smoke damage. The motorhome was a complete loss.

The fire went to two-alarms with crews responding from several Chelan County Fire Districts and Douglas County. Isaacson says the cause of the motorhome fire is under investigation.

There were no injuries and the family that occupied the apartment are being assisted by the Red Cross with emergency supplies and temporary shelter.
