  1. Update 4 p.m. — The Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is urging visitors to use extreme caution when recreating Saturday. Forecasts late Friday were calling for 35-mph winds with gusts of up to 70 mph in the mountains. Area officials said in a news release that the winds could produce blowing dust, down trees, make waters turbulent and push are wildfires. 
  2. EAST WENATCHEE — The Clearwater Steakhouse and Saloon ended up with several inches of water on the floor early Thursday morning after a man lit paper on fire and set off the sprinkler system.
  3. WINTHROP — A 22-year-old Lynden driver was killed Tuesday afternoon in a one-car accident on Highway 20 about 32 miles west of Winthrop.
  4. The Okanogan County Complex fires have burned more acreage than last summer's Carlton Complex, but they have not claimed the designation as the state's largest wildfire. The Carlton Complex, which started as four fires that merged into one massive fire, maintains that distinction.
  5. TWISP — The names of two other people injured last week in the Twisp River Fire were released Sunday by the state Department of Natural Resources.
