Wildfire burns in Goat Rocks Wilderness Area
WHITE PASS -- Fire officials were monitoring a fire Friday evening in the Goat Rocks Wilderness Area, southeast of the White Pass Ski Area, that had grown to 300 acres, officials said.
The fire in the Twin Peaks area began Monday.
Doug Jenkins, information specialist for the Naches Ranger District, said the blaze has not grown much since two loads of retardant were dropped on the fire Tuesday.
Fire officials are keeping tabs on the blaze, according to the Central Washington Interagency Communications Center in Wenatchee.
There was no word on the cause of the fire.
