939 Wildfires in Washington State So Far
I guess you better make that 940 wildfires after we got word about a fire near Eltopia this morning. Lightning was said to have caused that one. Now let's ponder this for a second....100, 200, 500...all big numbers, but we're nearing the 1000 wildfire mark this season. Now think about how many firefighters! Thank you, thank you brave men and women firefighters...we love you. On the ground and in the air, this will cost the state an estimated $400 million. The cost to run a helicopter on a fire run is about $3,000 per hour according to reports. Get more on the story and a video report HERE.
