    Cle Elum/Ellensburg Wild Fire


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Driving down Highway 97 between Cle Elum, Liberty and Ellensburg, marryknutsen captured this photo just two hours after the fire started. "I was horrified and amazed. It is very upsetting thinking about our community members who have lost their homes, but it is amazing to see how we have come together in this time of need to help one another out," she says. "People have stayed awake all night making food for the firefighters that are working so hard, and community members have donated their homes, food, clothing, land and time so that displaced residents have places to stay and keep their livestock. It honestly brings a tear to my eye and makes me proud to call myself a member of this community."
