(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee is asking for a federal Emergency Declaration to cover some of the costs related to multiple wildfires in Eastern Washington.  The request, which was sent to FEMA, says eleven counties and four tribes are affected or threatened by the fires.  Officials say the fires have burned more than 235-thousand acres and destroyed more than 50 homes and 60 other structures.  If the request is approved, the emergency declaration would make financial assistance available to the state, eligible local jurisdictions, and private nonprofit organizations.
