Wildfires in Washington state continued to burn over the weekend, but authorities said they hope a change in weather could help firefighters contain the blazes this week.
Fire information officer Bob MacGregor told the Seattle Times that rain was expected in the region in the coming days, a forecast he called “great for firefighting.” More than 100 homes have been destroyed by the flames, which have burned hundreds of thousands of acres and caused at least one death, according to reports.
Rob Koczewski, 67, of Okanogan, Wash., suffered an apparent heart attack while trying to save his home with his wife, according to the Associated Press. Koczewski, who died Saturday, was a retired U.S. Marine and state trooper.
“You can tell whose house burned down when they walk in,” shelter volunteer Val Burgett told The Spokesman-Review. “They just have this daze.”
