WENATCHEE — The Central Washington Asphalt plant north of Wenatchee will be closed at least two more weeks while repairs are made after a fire last week that caused about $1 million in damage.

Investigators have not determined the cause of the blaze that consumed oil and diesel tanks at the asphalt batch plant along Highway 97A, about two miles north of Rocky Reach Dam, and emitted toxic smoke that prompted an air-hazard alert in the Wenatchee Valley.
