Wildfire Burning on Yakima Training Range and South of Vantage
In what has been a very dry, volatile fire season, 25,000 acres have burned on the Yakima Firing Range.
The Saddle Mountain fire is about 20 percent contained, and crews are working hard to bring it under control.
The blaze is also burning south of Vantage. Five structures have been lost to the fire, say officials.
Officials don’t have an estimate as to when they may increase the containment, but cooler weather and the possibility of some rain in the forecast tomorrow and Wednesday may help.
