Headwater Fire To Hit 60 Percent Containment

Containment of the Headwater Fire 11 miles northeast of Goldendale is expected to reach 60 percent today (Tuesday).  Officials with the Southeast Washington Interagency Team at the site say smoke from the fire will increase today as crews implement small burnouts on the fire perimeter to solidify containment lines.  West winds are expected to push smoke away from Goldendale towards Box Canyon.  More accurate mapping has reduced the current size of the fire to 89 acres.  The Headwater Fire started Saturday afternoon on private property near Jenkins Creek.  236 firefighters from local, state, private, and federal agencies are involved in the containment effort.  Commanders expect the fire to be fully contained by the end of Thursday.
