LAKE WENATCHEE — Lauren Pflugrath wasn’t at his Lake Wenatchee vacation house Friday evening but he still had a close-up view of flames climbing trees around the west side of the house.

Pflugrath was at his Seattle area home about 7 p.m. when a motion sensor went off at his Lake Wenatchee house. First, a camera showed a small spot fire, then a fire truck whizzing by. He shifted views and saw a cabin to the west, owned by Jim and Mina Talbot of Quincy, go up in flames.
