The chief of the Washington State Patrol last week honored four Wenatchee Valley police officers for their emergency work during the 2018 Chelan Hills Fire. State Trooper Hayden McCall, Chelan County Sheriff's Sgt. Jerry Moore, Douglas County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Steve Groseclose and Douglas County Sheriff's Sgt. Rich Poppie each received the WSP's Award of Merit for their work from Chief John R. Batiste, the state's highest-ranking law enforcement officer. WSP spokesman John D. Shaffer said the officers were recognized for "tremendous efforts, communication and strong collaboration alerting area residents and conducting evacuations" during the blaze, which scorched 1,842 acres in Douglas County last summer.
