WENATCHEE, Wash. - Fire officials say a sporting goods store is a total loss after flames ripped through the building.

The fire broke out at Liquidation Sports, a two-story building in the 1500 block of Horselake Road, around 10:40 a.m., Rick Isaacson with the Chelan County Fire District said.

Residents should avoid the area if possible.
