Residents whose homes were destroyed in the Carlton Complex wildfire are blaming the state’s fire personnel for how they responded to the blaze, an article on king5.com reported October 23.
Dozens of citizens reportedly gathered in a meeting organized by the Okanogan County commissioners to address residents’ concerns about how the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) handled the wildfire that spread to over 200,000 acres. Some residents stated that the DNR refused to take the steps necessary to save their burning house. The DNR’s manager Loren Torgerson stated that fire personnel are obliged to follow certain protocols, and that they did their best to fight the Carlton Complex fire. A lawyer recently filed a tort representing 65 homeowners whose property was ravaged by the fire.
