Crews battle fire in eastern Washington state

DAVENPORT, Wash. (AP) — Crews continue to battle a wildfire in eastern Washington state that has burned two structures and threatens about 60 others.

The fire near Davenport, Washington, started on Thursday and continued to grow Sunday to about 7.3 square miles (19 square kilometers).

Fire spokeswoman Catherine Koele says the blaze is burning in tall grass and timber, and has threatened wheat fields.

Koele says the fire was zero-percent contained as of Sunday morning. She says their biggest concerns are the southwest corner and the wind.

Some people near the so-called Angels Springs Fire have been warned that they should be ready to evacuate, and some have been ordered to leave the area.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s office is updating evacuation information on its Facebook page .

Koele says the only injuries associated with the firefighting efforts have been bee stings.
