Wetter weather and thunderstorms to come this week

WENATCHEE — A series of thunderstorms due in later this week could bring some relief — or cause more problems — at ongoing fires in the state including the 15,000-acre Colockum Tarps Fire.

Power could be out until this evening in Colockum area

COLOCKUM — About 65 homes in the Colockum/Tarpiscan burn area may not see power restored until at least this evening, as crews work to replace poles that burned in the Colockum-Tarps fire, south of Wenatchee.

Red Cross shelter ready for evacuees

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.
