New wildfire near Twisp contained

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.
