KENNEWICK – Firefighters stopped the advance of an estimated 5,000-acre fire that tore through south Kennewick neighborhoods, consuming five homes and then threatening Finley.
Fire officials are cautious about calling the Bofer Canyon fire contained, but they said it is not threatening any new areas Sunday morning.
About 100 firefighters along with state airplanes battled the blaze to a standstill during the night.
“Although the fire is not 100 percent contained, things are looking better this morning,” the Benton County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook on Sunday morning.
