(AP) Firefighters are continuing to make progress on Central Washington’s two large wildfires.

containment is growing on the two fires, but smoke around Yakima is expected to hover for a while.

Fire officials report the 24-square-mile Cascade Creek Fire on the southwest slopes of Mount Adams is about 55 percent contained.

The 61-square-mile Table Mountain Fire in Kittitas County was about 55 percent contained as of Sunday morning. Fire officials say both mop-up and containment efforts are going well. And more than 1,300 people are still working on that fire.

Weather and fire officials say smoke in the Yakima area was pushed away by winds this weekend but it is expected to settle back in by Monday as the winds die down.

Both fires started in a lightning storm in early September.
