MANSFIELD, Wash. (AP) — The Douglas County sheriff's office is advising residents of about 70 homes near Mansfield they could be threatened by a wildfire and should prepare to evacuate.
Chief Deputy Robbin Wagg says deputies are giving residents in McNeil Canyon a Level 1 notice Monday — the lowest of three evacuation warnings.
The fire broke out Sunday and has burned about 350 acres about 10 miles south of Mansfield in central Washington.
The state fire marshal's office says the state is mobilizing to help local firefighters.
Firefighters are mopping up two other wildfires that burned over the weekend in the state: a 180-acre fire at Wenatchee and a 600-acre fire near Benton City.
