Sleepy Hollow Wildfire Has Destroyed A Dozen Washington Homes

 Monday, June 29, 2015


A wildfire burned out of control late Sunday in central Washington, forcing residents in hundreds of homes to evacuate, authorities said. At least a dozen homes have been destroyed, said Rich Magnussen with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office.
The fire began Sunday afternoon outside the city of Wenatchee, but was burning within the city limits late Sunday night, Magnussen said. The cause of the fire was uncertain, but temperatures in the region have been in the 100s for days, and rainfall has been scarce.
