High winds Sunday didn’t contribute to much growth on the Schneider Springs Fire. As of Monday morning, the fire 18 miles northwest of Naches was 67,534 acres with 3% containment, according to a Monday morning update from the fire incident team. "Wind was a high concern from the predicted weather going into the day, but the fire remained mostly on the ground and the winds did not contribute to any significant fire growth," the update said. A virtual public meeting is planned at 7:30 p.m. Monday on the Schneider Springs Fire Facebook page. Structure protection efforts will continue Monday, with crews and bulldozers continuing to build indirect containment lines on the north end of the fire on Bumping River Road corridor. Firefighters are continuing to assess work needed to protect private property along State Route 410 and U.S. Highway 12.
