WENATCHEE — Insurers for two homeowners who suffered losses in the 2013 Colockum Tarps Fire now seek damages from the orchardist whose faulty equipment triggered the blaze.

The lawsuit, brought by Farmers Insurance Co. and Foremost Property and Casualty Insurance Co., is the first against Colockum cherry grower William C. Scroggie, although attorneys say other claims are in the offing — including a potential suit by the state Department of Natural Resources.
