Posted: Updated:

NEAR SUNNYSIDE,  Wash. -- An update on the Dry Creek Fire, north of Sunnyside, which burned about 50,000 acres.     

Crews Tuesday were working to repair the old Timber Bridge that crosses Dry Creek on SR 241, which was destroyed by the fire.

Roads were closed while firefighters tackled the fires started by lightning last week. They've now been re-opened to traffic.

The fire was contained around midnight Monday.

Firefighters will continue to watch for hot spots for the next few days.
