Washington, DC -- Two more uncontrolled multiple wildfires have been added to the list of recent Washington State blazes designated for federal fire suppression funding by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The assistance requested by the state last weekend was approved immediately after it was reported that populated areas were being threatened by the 22,000-acre Rex Creek Complex Fire in Chelan County and the 20,000-acre Mt. Leona Complex Fire in Ferry County.
