A DNR helicopter has dropped water on the blaze and crews were able to create a hose line around it.

Spokesman Mark Grassel says the fire near Goldendale has burned 4,600 acres or about 7 square miles along the top of Satus Pass. No homes have been lost. Most of U.S. Highway 97 between Goldendale and Toppenish remains closed due to the fire

UPDATE, 2:11 p.m.  | A wildfire outside of North Bend on Mount Si is growing and spreading into a wilderness area, according to Eastside Fire and Rescue.

The state Department of Natural Resources has a helicopter responding from Ellensburg, about 80 miles away.

No evacuations have been ordered.
