SHELTON, Wash. (AP) - A hiker who fell down a steep embankment beneath Washington state's highest bridge was hoisted to safety in a dramatic rescue operation yesterday. A team from several Mason County agencies found the 25-year-old Bremerton man under High Steel Bridge, about 20 miles northwest of Shelton.

PASCO, Wash. (AP) - A fire official in Franklin County says a brush fire was started yesterday when a sparrow hit into a power pole, caught fire and dropped to the ground. Fire District 3 Chief Mike Harris says the grass and brush below the pole was so dry that it didn't take much to spark the blaze. The fire burned about 10 acres of brush and grass. It was under control within a few hours.
