STEHEKIN — Six homes are threatened and a campground and trail closed after a lightning-caused fire southeast of Stehekin grew from 50 to 250 acres since Monday.

Twenty firefighters and two helicopters are battling the Moore Point Fire, seven miles from Stehekin. Another crew of 20 firefighters is expected to arrive today to help fight the fire, which is burning on both private land and in the Lake Chelan Sawtooth Wilderness.
