The fire was estimated at more than 5 square miles. Its cause is under investigation and no injuries were reported.

Another fire that started Tuesday in the southeast corner of the state on both sides of the Snake River has scorched about 15 square miles, killed some cattle and was 10 percent contained Thursday evening.

A large wildfire in south-central Washington that threatened the Hanford nuclear reservation was 95 percent contained Thursday.

The blaze has scorched about 275 square miles of brush and grassland since it started Saturday at the U.S. Army’s Yakima Training Center.
