OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Gov. Jay Inslee is traveling to fire-ravaged central Washington on Thursday, a day after three firefighters were killed in a fast-moving blaze near Twisp.

Inslee’s spokesman, David Postman, said in an email that the governor will travel to Chelan, a resort town at the southern end of Lake Chelan that is threatened by a complex of fires covering more than 100 square miles.

Details of the visit are being worked out, but Inslee is expected to visit the Chelan Falls incident command post.
