WENATCHEE — On the day we meet for coffee, Nicole Benoit’s fingernails are painted a bright, eye-catching green.

In the early afternoon, a tire blew out on an old trailer being towed south on Highway 20 between Winthrop and Twisp. The tire rim dragged on the pavement for 1,000 feet, sparked and ignited dead grass on the side of the road.
