    How might I find out whether someone's house in Tonasket was affected by the fire?

    There were no Tonasket area homes burned by forest fire. The huge fire in the south end of the county never got within 30 miles of Tonasket; the Siwash Creek fire pictured here was put out in an afternoon and didn’t take out any homes.
