Fire crews in Washington State are battling several wildfires.   The one threatening the most structures is burning near Wenatchee. 

 

Carol Connolly, with the Northwest Coordination Center, says the largest fire covers 8,000 acres, but lighting sparked several fires nearby.  500 structures are at risk and crews are working to build containment lines to protect them. 

 

The fire burning south of Sisters in the Central Oregon Cascades has scorched 4300 acres and has zero containment.  Connolly says part of the fire is in a wilderness area where there are no roads for fire breaks.

 

200 firefighters are working to contain the blaze.

 

Nearly all of the fire crews in the northwest are on the lines, and they're bringing in crews from the south where the fires there are under control.
