Stevens County Fire District 1 says crews made significant progress on the Ford Corkscrew fire Wednesday.
According to their latest update, the fire remains at 14,000 acres in size and is now 14% contained. What's even more encouraging is that they say they have the fire's perimeter 100% contained.
Stevens County Fire District 1 says that north-easterly winds actually helped push the fire back into the burn area today, and while it did cause a small spot fire, it was quickly caught. More than 200 personnel are assigned to the Ford Corkscrew fire.
No evacuations or road closures that were in place Tuesday have been changed, but fire officials say they are discussed multiple times each day.
