Brush fire burns 2 mobile homes near Yakima

YAKIMA, Wash. - A brush fire burned two mobile homes Wednesday night near Yakima.

Officials told the Yakima Herald-Republic flames also destroyed three or four outbuildings, a camp trailer and several vehicles.

No injuries were reported. The fire spread across 20 acres of brush and went to three alarms before firefighters had bulldozed a line around it.

Two larger wildfires are burning in Washington.

A fire near Entiat has blackened nearly 10 square miles and threatened dozens of homes. The fire burned down to Highway 97A Wednesday night, forcing the closure of a 30-mile stretch between Wenatchee and Chelan.

A fire near Ford in Stevens County has burned about a square mile and threatened a dozen homes.

Forecasters say hot, dry weather through the weekend will keep the wildfire danger high.
