Over 800 homes have been evacuated and a highway was closed due to a wildfire that broke out in Washington, NBC News reported on July 17.
Reports said a state of emergency was declared in at least 30 counties in Washington as fire crews fought the fire that blazed out of control due to strong winds. Authorities closed Highway 2 due to a fire near Leavenworth that also forced residents to leave their houses. The fire that ravaged the west was reportedly caused by lightning seen 70 miles away in Seattle. Aside from Washington, other states like California, Utah, Oregon and Nevada also experienced wildfire conditions.
Not long ago, Bastrop County also experienced the powerful destruction of wildfires, and thousands of houses were destroyed.
