APTOPIX Western Wildfires
Surrounded by burnt brush and trees, a house still stands Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012, after surviving a wildfire a day earlier, near Cle Elum, Wash. Crews fighting the large blaze in central Washington hope to increase containment levels by Wednesday evening, but are keeping a wary eye on weather conditions later in the week. The fire burning near Cle Elum has burned dozens of homes and forced about 900 people to evacuate. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
