OKANOGAN COUNTY — Thunderstorms blowing across Okanogan County on Saturday afternoon ignited at least two small lightning-sparked fires, both brought under control by evening.

In the Methow Valley, fire crews from the Forest Service and DNR had a 0.1-acre fire in the McFarland Creek area under control by mid-afternoon and another small fire on McClure Mountain south of Twisp under control by evening, said Forest Service spokeswoman Shannon O’Brien.
