The White House released the following statement late last night.
"From Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:
The President was updated this evening on the wildfires plaguing the American West, including the tragic loss of three Washington State firefighters who selflessly battled these fires. On behalf of a grateful nation, the President's thoughts and prayers are with the families of these brave Americans.
The President directed his team to stay in close touch with state and local officials as their efforts to fight these fires continue.
Administration officials will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide Federal assistance as necessary."
