2 vehicles involved in deadly Washington fire

 More details are emerging about the incident in which three firefighters died while battling huge wildfires in north-central Washington.

Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said Friday a group of firefighters tried to escape the flames in two vehicles and on foot.

One vehicle made it out of danger Wednesday, but the other vehicle crashed and was overrun by flames. That’s the vehicle in which the three firefighters died. Rogers said the four firefighters who were injured, one critically, were among those who had to escape on foot.

Rogers said it is not clear when the county coroner will release the cause of death of the three firefighters.

The Okanogan Complex consists of five wildfires that are burning within what is Washington’s largest county in size. The fires are threatening more than 5,100 homes.
