Whipped by high winds, wildfires in central Washington state have scorched some 28,000 acres and destroyed at least 60 homes, fire officials said late Tuesday. One of those structures was the home of Elaine Burt. After she left her home near Ellensburg she received terrible news from a neighbor; she’d lost more than a home, all her dogs had died, too, CNN affiliate KING-TV reported. "They’re all dead, and my house is gone," she said as her neighbor phoned her with an update. "Those poor little doggies."
