Explosives Now Possible To Help Control Snag Canyon Fire

KIT NEWS

ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) — Fire officials are considering the use of explosives to build a fire break on an inaccessible section of a fast growing wildfire in central Washington. Officials say the Snag Canyon wildfire near Ellensburg has grown to nearly 14 square miles and is only 15 percent contained. The explosives crew is looking at the northern edge of the fire, which is near the site where another large wildfire burned in 2012. A new fire in Central Washington has taken off quickly near Cle Elum. It started around 4 p.m. Thursday and had grown to about 400 to 500 acres by Friday morning. More than 100 miles northeast of those fires, a wildfire burning on the Colville Reservation has grown to 16 square miles.
