¶ The Sleepy Hollow fires destroyed at least a couple dozen homes even up into the Broadview area of West Wenatchee. ¶ This view shows the burnt hills and a melted fence where a house was spared even having fires on three sides. ¶ What of that stripe down the hillside that seems to have survived? That is likely where a helicopter dropped water in attempt to block the fire before it found its way into the Broadview neighborhood. ¶ The wildfires took place in the unusually extra hot early summer of 2015 in Wenatchee, Washington, USA. ¶ Embers floating around scorched other rooftops and started additional fires elsewhere, such as several structures in an industrial warehouse district just east of here as well. ¶ The map address range is only near the area to add at least some privacy for those that lost homes. ¶ How can you help?
