CLE ELUM , WA - Another wildfire has popped up in Kittitas county. Firefighters said the fire started around 4 p.m. Thursday on the backside of the Cle Elum Ridge and is about 500 acres.

It is burning on U.S. Forest Service land, which is heavily wooded and providing a lot of fuel for the fire to grow bigger.

Sheriff's deputies started a level 1 evacuation notice for the homes off Woods Road and Steele Road.

They are going door to door warning people who live in the area about the fire, however no one is being actively evacuated at this time.

The Sheriff's Office and the Public Works Department placed barricades closing the 4510 Road.
