A thunderstorm that rolled from southeast Oregon into Washington Sunday night included more than 4,600 lightening strikes that causes about 19 fires. Carol Connolly in the northwest interagency coordination center says most were less than a half-acre in size. But two of the fires were larger - about 500 acres in size and currently burning in brush and grasses. The Cougar Fire is in the Vale Bureau of Land Management Area on the eastern edge of Oregon. The other fire is burning in Washington near Chelan

Connolly says additional resources were sent to the area to watch for new starts.
