Washington wildfires still burning

The Cascade Creek Fire burning on the southern flank of Mount Adams continues to grow. According to the InciWeb.org, the national incident reporting system, 6,850 acres have burned as of Tuesday morning.

Reported as 30 percent contained, over 600 fire fighters remain assigned to the fire. The reported plan is to keep the fire in a box with boundaries of Cascade Creek to the west, the timberline of Mt. Adams to the north, the lava bed to the east, and the 020 road to the south.

The Highway 141 fire in White Salmon was reported 100 percent contained on Sept. 11.
