Progress Being Made Fighting Carlton Complex Fire
Officials say the massive wildfire that has destroyed about 150 homes in north-central Washington is now more than half contained.
Firefighters made good progress Wednesday as rain and hail fell. The moisture wasn’t enough to extinguish the nearly 400-square-mile Carlton Complex of fires, but it gave crews a chance to dig lines along the south and east parts of the fire.
The complex was reported to be 52 percent contained as of Wednesday night, up from 16 percent earlier in the day.
