Firefighters Gain Control Of Blaze
The first round of forest fires of the season was winding down Saturday with containment of a 200-acre fire and little danger that a 20-acre burn would get out of hand.
Bernie Pineda of the state Department of Natural Resources said 198 firefighters completed trails around the 200-acre Taylor Creek fire on Lookout Mountain three miles northeast Marblemount.
Another 110 firefighters and three helicopters might not get a 20-acre fire at the southern tip of Lummi Island officially contained before Tuesday, but natural features should prevent any significant spread of the fire, said Grag Ariss, another state spokesman.
