Good evening and welcome to the NCWLIFE Evening News. I’m Grant Olson. Before we get to today’s top news stories, let’s take a quick look outside our weather window:

And now, a few of the stories we’re following for you tonight, A hydraulic fuel spill shut down Wenatchee Avenue for about an hour Sunday morning. After a semi collided with an Elk on Interstate 90 this morning, the Washington State Patrol is reminding motorists to always be on the lookout for wild animals, and, We will tell you about a Chelan County Sheriff’s deputy’s efforts to save an injured Great Horned Owl he found Friday night along a roadway in Chelan.   

But first, we begin tonight. . .

The regional SWAT team assisted Wenatchee police in executing a series of warrants at a home Friday afternoon where a 49-year-old man was arrested on numerous drug and other charges.

Wenatchee Police Captain Edgar Reinfeld said law enforcement, acting on information from an informant, found meth, heroin, marijuana, prescription drugs, a stolen firearm and a stolen motorcycle in the raid on the home in the 700 block of South Western Avenue in Wenatchee. Charges against Gordon L. McVay include possession with intent to deliver the drugs. Reinfeld said the police services division has been working that location for some time.

A hydraulic fuel spill shut down Wenatchee Avenue for about an hour Sunday morning.

The spill came from a manlift that was being used to clean windows about 9 a.m. at the Goodfellows Brothers building at North Wenatchee Avenue and Second Street. The lift spilled about 30 gallons of hydraulic fuel that the Wenatchee Public Works Department was able to prevent from getting into the city’s stormwater system.

After a semi collided with an Elk on Interstate 90 this morning, the Washington State Patrol is reminding motorists to always be on the lookout for wild animals, especially in the area between Kittitas and the Vantage Bridge on I-90.

Elk populations are especially heavy. In that area and Trooper John Bryant said the significant damage done to the semi shows how catastrophic it could have been if it were a smaller vehicle.

A piece of the elk’s antler ended up lodged in the driver’s side window. The driver of the semi was not injured in the collision.

A Chelan County Sheriff’s deputy’s efforts to save an injured Great Horned Owl he found Friday night along a roadway in Chelan proved unsuccessful as the owl’s injuries proved to be too severe.

The deputy believes the owl was hit by a vehicle. After gaining the animal’s trust the deputy was able to get it into a container, which animal control then took to a local veterinarian. But the sheriff’s office reported that because of injuries to the owl’s head it had to be put down.

Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes and Seattle’s defense knocked Jimmy Garoppolo out of the game with three sacks as the Seahawks downed San Francisco Sunday 37-27…

Bobby Wagner led the defense with two of Seattle’s three sacks.  He said he was happy they called more blitzes to raise havoc with the 49er’s quarterback…

Seattle’s much-maligned defense held San Francisco to 7-points through 3-quarters and had really dominated the game until Garoppolo came out.  Coach Pete Carroll was really pleased with his defense, especially considering all the injuries…

Russell Wilson completed 27-of-37 passes for 261-yards and four touchdowns.  He says it was great to see so many young guys step up and help out on the defensive side of the ball.  It made it easier on the offense…

D.K. Metcalf was Wilson’s favorite target in the game as the second-year wide receiver hauled in 12-passes for 161-yards and two touchdowns.  He was quick to credit the defense on Seattle’s victory…

One guy who definitely stepped up Sunday was rookie running back DeeJay Dallas.  With Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde down due to injuries, Dallas got the lion’s share of the snaps.  He says working out with Metcalf in the off-season helped prepare him for the war on Sunday…

Seattle was without 7-starters Sunday due to injury.  Coach Carroll says it was quite a statement for so many other players to step up and help the Seahawks beat the Niners…

The Seahawks improved to 6-and-1 with the victory and will next travel to Buffalo to take on the 6-and-2 Bills Sunday.  The game will kickoff at 10am on FOX.

Checking the rest of the NFC West Sunday with our Les Schwab Scoreboard…

Arizona had a bye so there was only one other NFC West team in action, and that was the Los Angeles Rams playing in Miami.  It was the first-career start for Tua Tagovailoa (tag-oh-vie-low-uh).  But it was the Dolphin’s defense and special teams that stole the show.

Andrew Van Ginkel scooped up a Jared Goff fumble and returned it 78-yards for a touchdown in the second quarter.  Less than 2-minutes later, Jakeem Grant returned a punt 88-yards for a touchdown and Miami beat the Rams 28-17.

Seattle is in 1st place in the NFC West at 6-and-1.  Arizona is second at 5-and-2.  L-A is 3rd at 5-and-3 while the 49ers sit in last place at 4-and-4.

It was a wild weekend across the NFL…

Zack Moss scored twice on the ground for Buffalo and Cam Newton fumbled away New England’s last-chance as the Bills hung on to beat the Patriots 24-21.

Joe Burrow threw two touchdown passes as Cincinnati surprised Tennessee 31-20.

Derek Carr threw the game’s only touchdown in the 4th quarter as the Las Vegas Raiders went into Cleveland and beat the Browns 16-6.

Philip Rivers threw for 262-yards and two touchdowns leading the Colts over Detroit 41-21.

Dalvin Cook rushed for 163-yards and three touchdowns as Minnesota shocked Green Bay 28-22.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 416-yards and 5-touchdowns in Kansas City’s 35-9 mauling of the Jets.

Lamar Jackson was intercepted twice, one returned for a touchdown as Pittsburgh remained undefeated with a 28-24 win over Baltimore.

Drew Lock hit KJ Hamler on a 1-yard touchdown pass as time expired to lead Denver to a come-from-behind 31-30 win over the Chargers.

Wil Lutz connected on a 35-yard field goal in overtime to lift New Orleans over Chicago 26-23. 

Carson Wentz had two touchdowns to go with his two interceptions as Philadelphia took care of Dallas 24-9.

Thanks Eric.

Finally tonight, something to make you smile. With Moses Lake’s Red Door Donuts closing last Friday, firefighters took the opportunity to send their condolences and some doughnuts to their counterparts in the police department. The Moses Lake Police Department says the firefighters’ gift was much appreciated. QUOTE, It was awfully nice of you to pause your Fortnite tournament long enough to recognize our pain, UNQUOTE.

Red Door Donuts owners Rick and Lisa Boorman announced earlier this month they are moving out of state and closing the business. The similarly named Red Door Café in Moses Lake will remain open.
