SPOKANE, Wash. - Rebuilding has been slow in the year since the Valley View Fire near the Dishman Hills Natural Area in Spokane County destroyed 11 homes.

The 1,000-acre fire took off in stiff winds last July 10, forcing numerous evacuations and costing $3.5 million to fight.

County records show that only five homes have been rebuilt by owners who indicated their structures were lost in the fire.

Logging crews have cut down many of the dead and dying trees.

The fire has also spawned numerous lawsuits over who was at fault.
