The weekend thunderstorms sparked over a dozen new wildfires in Central Washington according to reports from the Central Washington Interagency Communications Center (CWICC) at Pangborn Airport. Assistant Manager, Jonathan Nash says crews were kept busy on several fronts. . .
Meanwhile, Debbie Kelly with the US Forest Service says cooler and wetter weather helped crews working the Devore Creek fire in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. It remains at about 450 acres.
Also, heavy rains served to dampen down the Williams Flats Fire which is now 45 percent contained with over 44-thousand acres burned.
