A 425-acre wildfire a few miles east of the town of Kittitas (WA) destroyed a home and some outbuildings over the weekend, reports ifiberone.com.

The fire started around 1 p.m. Sunday by Stardust Lane, with the cause still under investigation.

Crews managed to contain the blaze after several hours, but not before it did some damage. While fighting the fire, officials say two firefighters were injured—one was burned and the other was struck by a fire truck, both of whom sustained minor injuries.

In addition, the fire torched a house as well as some surrounding structures in the 2900 block of Clerf Road. Dozens of area homes were under evacuation alerts.
