Colville tribes race time to log charred lumber


COLVILLE INDIAN RESERVATION — It’s a stickpin skyline: fire-blackened trees without leaves, needles or even branches as far as the eye can see.

The quiet is deathly, until an 18-wheel logging truck roars out of the blackened woods. James Griffin hops out of cab of his logging rig.
