WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) -- Crews in central Washington and Wyoming worked Monday to protect homes from two of the many wildfires burning across the West. This destructive fire season stretches into September with no relief expected from the weather anytime soon.
Winds and temperatures remain high in parts of the region, worrying officials who had hoped cooler temperatures and moisture would eventually calm down the threat.
Hundreds of people were told to leave their residences in Wyoming near Casper, and some people in Montana and central Washington also faced evacuation orders.
Meanwhile improved conditions aided crews battling a Northern California blaze near Ukiah.
