Governor asks for funds to fight wildfires

A line of fire snakes along a hillside at dusk Friday, July 18, 2014, in Winthrop, Wash. A fire racing through rural north-central Washington destroyed about 100 homes, leaving behind smoldering rubble, solitary brick chimneys and burned-out automobiles as it blackened hundreds of square miles. Friday's dawn revealed dramatic devastation, with the Okanagan County town of Pateros, home to 650 people, hit especially hard.
