Monastery Complex Fire remains steady into Saturday

Posted: Updated:

KLICKITAT COUNTY, Wash.-- Officials say the Monastery Complex Fire stayed pretty steady overnight, with no major changes to size or direction.
 
4,200 acres are burned with 64 buildings being destroyed. 9 of which are confirmed homes.

The fire is still only 20% contained.
 
Highway 97 is currently open but that could change depending on the fire.

Washington State Patrol says the cause was defective truck equipment.
    
The Klickitat County Sheriff's Office is working on getting those evacuated back to their homes, but that all depends on if the fire cooperates.
