The Cold Creek Fire burning along Highway 12 near White Pass is now 75-percent contained, according to the Yakima Valley Emergency Management. After crews were able to contain the fire, the emergency management team says it rained in the area. Officials say the fire did not grow overnight, which still remains at 564 acres. Also, Yakima Valley Emergency Management, Southeast Washington Interagency Incident Management Team, and other partners made the decision to remove all evacuations for this fire. All evacuation levels were lifted on Tuesday at noon. Officials say locals have returned to their homes and cabins in the area. They say locals should be careful driving on the highway since the fire is still active on both sides and loose rocks and rolling debris may enter the roadway.
