FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2015 file photo, an airplane tanker flies through smoky air as it drops fire retardant on a wildfire near Omak, Wash. Washington's 2016 wildfire season got off to an abrupt and early start in May when two separate blazes tore through dry, steep forest less than 70 miles from Seattle. Officials said the recent blazes underscore a new reality in fire-prone states like Washington _ that wildfires are happening earlier in the year, and people should be prepared. (AP Photo/Ted S.
