A wildfire near Goldendale, Washington is blackening grasslands, shrubs and forests along Highway 97. It’s called the Mile Marker 28 Fire.
About 30 homes have been evacuated so far.
“As of the last information we have, no structures have been lost. So it’s still in a precautionary mode, says Randy Shepard, an information officer on the fire. "But given the nature of the fire, we didn’t want to get anyone too close to the fire.”
The fire started on Wednesday, but the cause is still unknown. Much of the active blaze is on Yakama Nation land.
