The Table Mountain Complex Fire, viewed from near Cle-Elum, Wash., continues to burn, Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012. A combination of factors — including warm temperatures, winds, very low humidity and low moisture in the vegetation — caused the complex to grow and merge into one large fire on Wednesday, fire spokeswoman Jan Ulrich said.
