Fire officials say the blaze is 75 percent contained and has grown slightly to 80,801 acres.
All Level 3 evacuations have been either eliminated or downgraded to Level 2, which means all permanent residents are able to return to their homes. Road closures continue to be in effect for parts of Naneum Road and Colockum Road in Kittitas County.
Coming up at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., fire officials will show how they were able to save nearly 30 vacation cabins by utilizing air resources and what’s called “defensible space” around the structures.
