Cold Springs Fire 98% Contained


MOUNT ADAMS, Wash. -- The Cold Springs Fire, which has burned nearly 8,000 acres, is 98 percent contained.

More than 200 people are still on the scene, working to extinguish hot spots. They are moving cautiously because "snags, which are burned trees that are still standing, are abundant and very dangerous.

Firefighters say they may not have 100 percent containment until the Cold Springs area gets some rain.
