Firefighters in Washington state were battling a massive blaze Saturday night after a fire at one home spread to at least a dozen others and engulfed a timber mill, authorities said.

High winds overnight could fan the flames, said Sgt. George Town of the Yakima County Sheriff's Office.

Town said investigators do not know what caused the fire, which started around 2 p.m. Saturday in the town of White Swan, located on the Yakama Indian Reservation.

Town said the fire may have destroyed or damaged at least 12 and as many as 20 homes. A timber mill was also engulfed by the flames, he said.

Two firefighters sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene, he said.
