OKANOGAN, Wash. – Temperatures are expected to hit triple digits this week in parts of central and eastern Washington, not good news for crews fighting wildfires there.

Cindy Forest Elkins at fire command says firefighters don’t get much rest.

 

Governor Jay Inslee says they’re getting help from Washington D.C.

 

The National Weather Service says winds will remain light, but there may be lightening later this week.

The largest fire has torn through nearly 400-square-miles, destroying 300 homes throughout the Methow Valley.

It’s about 66 percent contained.
