Yakama Nation seeks millions in lawsuit over 2013 Klickitat County wildfire
The Yakama Nation is seeking $65.5 million in damages from the Klickitat Public Utility District for a 2013 wildfire that burned nearly 20,000 acres of tribal timber land. The Yakima Herald-Republic reports the state says the utility is at fault because its power lines set the blaze. But the PUD claims loggers were responsible for the fire.
