WENATCHEE — More than 1,000 people have been dispatched to the line to help contain the wildfires around Wenatchee, and after their day (or night) fighting fire, most have been shown to Confluence State Park to camp. Treyce Schireman, a second-year firefighter from La Grande, Ore., arrived at camp on Monday in a type-six engine.
