The Chelan County sheriff's office is asking for the public's help in identifying a person seen near the start of a central Washington wildfire that has destroyed more than two dozen homes.

Authorities have said the fire, which started June 28, was human-caused, though they were still determining whether it was intentional or on accident.

The office said in a statement Monday that a white Toyota pickup truck was reported in the area driving westbound at or near the time the fire began.

Anyone with information is asked to call 509-667-6845 and leave a message.

The Sleepy Hollow Fire is 98 percent contained, but it burned 2,950 acres, destroyed 29 homes and struck three commercial businesses in and around Wenatchee.
