Authorities in Central Washington State are urging hundreds of people to leave their homes. A wildfire has burned at least 2.6 square miles, and is threatening numerous structures.
A wildfire in the Sleepy Hollow Heights neighborhood east of Wenatchee broke out about 2:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. CT) on Sunday and spread across 1,800 acres. The fire destroyed at least a dozen structures, including at least six homes in a few hours. The fire conditions with gusty winds and lightning could worsen the fire Monday.
