Washington Wildfire Destroys Two Dozen Homes

A Washington wildfire that jumped from roof to roof, consuming as many as a two dozen homes, is now partially contained, authorities said Monday, but parts of Wenatchee continue to burn. The Sleepy Hollow Fire in Wenatchee — about 140 miles east of Seattle — broke out Sunday afternoon and spread rapidly to 3,000 acres, Washington State Fire Marshall spokesman Bill Slosson said. Several hundred homes in the path of the fire were ordered to evacuate.
