Chris Rader | The fire of '94: This summer's fires a reminder of the Tyee Fire

This summer’s devastating wildfires in North Central Washington has ignited memories of another terrible fire season 20 years ago. Four major fire complexes on what were then the Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee and Entiat ranger districts of the Wenatchee National Forest destroyed homes, disrupted commerce, and blackened many miles of forest landscape in 1994.

Steve Wright | How can the Chelan County PUD do all that and not raise rates?
