Cantwell Statement on Eastern Washington Wildfires

SEATTLE, WA – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), released this statement regarding the Gray Fire burning near Medical Lake and Cheney:

“This fire is a reminder that the State of Washington is in the middle of a dangerous wildfire season, and I will continue to work with federal agencies and state, local and Tribal governments to make sure wildland fire crews have what they need to fight fires this season and communities impacted by wildfires have what they need to recover. My thoughts are with the Medical Lake community and all communities in Spokane County as they face this dangerous and devastating fire.”
