Small town of Malden left in ruins

In downtown Malden, Washington, dozens of buildings still smolder, Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020, the day after a fast-moving wildfire swept through the tiny town west of Rosalia. The town, hit by a wind-driven wildfire Monday that destroyed many structures, once thrived when it was on the Milwaukee Road rail line until the railroad went out of business in the late 1970s.
