Diamond Butte Fire half contained

Posted: Updated:

White Swan, WASH.--Firefighters said the Diamond Butte Fire is now 50 percent contained.

It's been burning on the northwest part of the Yakama Nation Reservation for nearly a week.   

Crews continued to strengthen firelines, and dead trees were removed in an effort to reduce fuel Saturday.

Ahtanum Meadows, Ahtanum Campground and Whites Ridge Trailhead are all closed and are expected to stay closed through the weekend.
