  1. The fire and the 4-year-old
  2. CHILIWIST — The gravel road to what remains of Loren Dolge’s log cabin now divides a still-smoldering landscape dotted with charred ponderosa pine and desert scrub.
  3. Firefighters today battled windy conditions that pushed the Chiwaukum Creek Fire to 11,444 acres. The fire moved north and into the Thompson Creek area. Crews will backburn in that area Monday to eliminate fuels and strengthen the fireline, fire spokeswoman Connie Mehmel said this evening. The fire also grew along its southern edge to Icicle Ridge.
  4. From finish lines to deadlines
  5. Fire pulls to within 10 miles of Chelan, but is heavily staffed at leading edge.
