A Level 3 “Go Now” evacuation order remains in effect for a large swath of Bonney Lake as exhausted crews try to hold the lines to prevent any more losses caused by the Sumner Grade Fire. The fire has already tripled in size from an earlier report on Tuesday and has now scorched 150 acres.

This, as six homes, vehicles, sheds, three shops and farming equipment were destroyed after a wild brush fire in Graham. Governor Inslee has pledged to help hard hit counties.

Meanwhile, Seattle police said they arrested 22 people during the initial confrontation and confiscated some unexploded Molotov cocktails.
