WENATCHEE — Four members of a family from the scorched Tarpiscan Canyon area were the first evacuees to seek emergency relief in a shelter set up here Saturday by the Apple Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The family arrived at the shelter Saturday evening to find a sleeping area, showers, meals and updates on the Colockum Tarps Fire, which has burned an estimated 10,000 acres, destroyed five homes and torched scores of outbuildings since it began Saturday morning. The family’s names were not released.
