Inslee Declares SOE Due To Wildfires

Over the weekend Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency because of the many wildfires burning statewide.

The Jolly Mountain Fire near Cle Elum is one of the worst consuming nearly 21,000 acres and is still zero percent contained with over 675 firemen on the ground and 77 engines along with 5 helicopters deployed.

Officials say it may take more than a month to get the fire contained.
