WENATCHEE — Chelan County commissioners on Monday OK’d buying a mobile morgue expansion trailer for up to $80,000.

Central Washington Hospital’s morgue has capacity for three bodies and reached capacity on Sept. 25 after the hospital saw 11 deaths in about three days. Chelan County Coroner Wayne Harris said on Monday that the hospital’s morgue is too small.
