Tinpan Fire

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.,- The Tinpan Fire continues to burn Saturday in the Entiat District.

It has now affected more than 55-hundred acres.

Fire crews say they are currently putting in a special sprinkler system that will help stop the spread of the fire.

They hope to prevent it from hitting the Myrtle Creek area; where they say, piles of debris could make the fire uncontrollable.

Entiat River Road is closed at Entiat Falls, and all campgrounds above that area are also closed.
