WINTHROP, Wash. - The Rising Eagle Road fire, which broke out Friday night near Winthrop is now mostly under control. Firefighters spent Saturday working on putting out hot spots.
Fire investigators are in the process of assessing the damage, but there are reports that some homes and outbuildings were lost.
Firefighters say they used an aerial assault that stopped the fire quickly and kept it from reaching the fire command station set up at Liberty Bell High School in Winthrop.
The concern now is that thunderstorms on Saturday night could cause flare ups and push the Carlton Complex fire further north.
