DOUGLAS CO., Wash. — Crews began mopping up the Road 11 Fire, northeast of Wenatchee, on Monday. All evacuations have been lifted.

The fire started on Saturday and quickly burned 10,000 acres of grass, sage and wheat crops. The dangerous conditions forced Level 3 and Level 2 evacuations over the weekend.

According to the Southeast Washington All-Hazard Interagency Type 3 team, several structures were damaged.

Several agencies responded to assist with the fire fight and local farmers jumped in to help by digging a fire line along the west end of Mansfield.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
