Central Washington wildfire destroys at least 60 homes
The Seattle Times: Fire officials say that a wildfire burning east of Cle Elum, Washington — which has burned some 60 homes and more than 20,000 acres — was caused by a construction crew working in the area of Taylor Bridge.
The Taylor Bridge wildfire is moving at 25-30 miles per hour and there is zero containment as of this morning, according to Department of Natural Resources spokesman Mark Grassel.
