WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - The Mission Ridge Ski Resort near Wenatchee is using its snow-making equipment to spray water on buildings and grounds as a wildfire burns just a half-mile away.
The canons that make snow in the winter were used Thursday to wet down areas that could be ignited by embers from the wildfire.
Mission Ridge owner Larry Scrivanich told The Wenatchee World that rocky, mostly barren ground plus the work of firefighters should keep the flames from reaching the resort. He says the flames from the Table Mountain fire are visible.
Chelan County Emergency Management advised residents of the area to evacuate.
