CAMP MURRAY, Wash. (AP) - The state is sending firefighters and managers to help battle a 1,000-acre wildfire in the southeast corner of Washington.
Other firefighters also are trying to contain a 10,000-acre wildfire in central Washington.
The new fire broke out Thursday afternoon five miles south of Asotin and is burning grass, brush and wheat.
The state Emergency Operations Center at Camp Murray has been activated to coordinate state assistance.
Overnight winds forced firefighters to retreat at the central Washington fire as it grew to 10,000 acres - more than 15 square miles.
Spokesman Dan Garner at the incident management center at Brewster High School says no structures are threatened.
The fire broke out Wednesday near Pateros and Brewster. It's burning grass, brush, scattered timber and some wheat land.
