Firefighters from overseas are coming to help battle the Okanogan Complex fire — the largest fire in Washington’s history — and other blazes around the state, officials announced Tuesday.

The Okanogan Complex grew 2.6 square miles overnight Monday and now stands at 403 square miles, or more than 250,000 acres. There are 1,345 people battling the flames, officials said. As many as 2,000 Level 3 mandatory evacuations still exist around the town of Okanogan.

The fire is about 15 percent contained.
