Crews getting a handle on Discovery Fire

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA--You might be seeing more smoke from the Discovery fire west of Yakima, but that doesn't mean it's getting worse.

Firefighters say the wildfire's gone from 15 to 50 percent contained in just a few days.

Nearly 900 people have fought the 4,100 acre fire since lightning started it eleven days ago.

If everything goes smoothly, the fire could be fully contained by next week.
