Lightning sparks fires in hot, dry E. Washington

Forecasters say thunderstorm lightning could start more wildfires in Eastern Washington in a spell of hot, dry weather.

SPOKANE, Wash. —

Forecasters say thunderstorm lightning could start more wildfires in Eastern Washington in a spell of hot, dry weather.

Dozens of fires were reported Thursday, and firefighters have responded to keep them from spreading in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and on the Colville Indian Reservation.

New fires also were reported west of the Cascades in the Glacier Peak Wilderness of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and in Olympic National Park.

The Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for wildfire danger Friday from the North Cascades to the Idaho Panhandle.
