Washington Wildfires
Les Kile watches as a Chelan County fire crew arrives at his house near Entiat, Wash., Wednesday afternoon, July 9, 2014. He was put on a level three evacuation order. He and his wife decided to stay at their home at the mouth of Spencer Canyon even though fire had crested the mountain overlooking their home. Fire spokesman Mick Mueller says about 250 firefighters were aided by air tankers dropping retardant and helicopters dropping water Wednesday on the Mills Canyon fire. Several dozen homeowners have been warned they might need to evacuate. (AP Photo/The Wenatchee World, Don Seabrook)
