More Wildfires Rage Across WA State

I was on duty yesterday when two wildfires erupted, followed by two more when I went off shift. 
 
Numerous other fires, mostly caused by lightning strikes from a recent storm front, also burn across the state.
 
The most urgent situation occurred in Chelan County, where 1,000 residents were forced to evacuate.

Weather-related events often lead to unique, even weird situations. For instance, while part of Okanogan County was burning, another portion was under a Flash Flood Warning.
 
Too bad these two didn't cancel each other out, especially since our drought conditions will resume today.
