STEHEKIN — A dry lightning storm that moved through the area Wednesday evening tripled the size of the Moore Point Fire southeast of Stehekin, and ignited a new fire near Chumstick Mountain on the Entiat Ranger District.

Firefighters quickly corralled the one-acre blaze that resulted from a lightning strike west of Entiat, and are mopping up today, said Jim Duck, coordinator for the Central Washington Interagency Communications Center.
