Fast-growing fires burn on Yakama Reservation

A fire on the Yakama Reservation in Washington has more than quadrupled in size over the past day.

The 250-acre Polallie Fire is just one of three blazes on the reservation. All were caused by lightning.

About 80 firefighters are battling the fires, with most dedicated to Polallie. Crews expect 50 more reinforcements today. The two other fires aren't as large and appear to be under control.
