Mile Marker 28 Fire Now 26,000 Acres, Still 60% Contained

Posted: Updated:

NEAR GOLDENDALE, Wash.-- Firefighters are still working to get a handle on a forest fire near Goldendale that has grown to around 26,000 acres overnight.

Firefighters tell us it is currently 60 percent contained, and they still have 1,300 personnel fighting the blaze.

They say containment lines along the north and northeast sides of the fire are completed.

Firefighters are now focusing on getting the western flank of the fire under control. They've had trouble with that side due to high winds and terrain.

Satus Pass is still closed both ways. No word on when it will reopen.
