Crews battling to contain a wildfire burning close to a city in Washington state said stronger winds forecast for Tuesday could push flames into surrounding canyons, and urged people to be ready for more evacuations.

About 180 homes closest to the so-called Snag Canyon blaze remained under evacuation orders, while residents in Ellensburg, a city of about 18,000 people east of the Cascade mountains, feared their homes could be at risk, fire officials said. (Reuters)
