CHELAN, Wash. – The latest on wildfires in Washington state that killed three firefighters (all times local):
A firefighter critically injured battling blazes in Washington state has burns over about 60 percent of his body.
Officials at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle said Thursday he is a 25-year-old man from Puyallup.
Three firefighters were killed Wednesday and three others injured as crews fought raging wildfires advancing on towns in the north-central part of the state, some of the many blazes burning uncontrolled throughout the arid West.
It's unclear if all the casualties happened in the same area.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee was scheduled to speak Thursday morning after getting a briefing from fire officials.
