TWISP — A wildfire that started Friday and burned six to eight homes between Twisp and Winthrop has been contained by firefighters.
Fire spokesman Brian Scott said firefighters have built a line all the way around the Rising Eagle Road Fire.
He said they’re making good progress on the fire that has burned about 500 acres and a much larger complex of fires in the same area.
Although there were some new fires started by lighting in North-Central Washington on Saturday, none were serious and all were extinguished quickly.
Scott said evacuation notices are being revised Sundayday and some people may be able to go back home.
