If you're wondering if Mother Nature helped douse the Schneider Springs Fire firefighters say they didn't increase containment but the fire grew under 100 acres between Saturday and Sunday.


The fire is now at 31% containment.
The fire, which started August 3 by a lightning strike grew from 104, 800 acres Friday to 104, 853 acres on Sunday.
Officials with the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest say "scattered showers fell over the fire with the greatest amount around the eastern portion. Crews within the northwest area of the fire Sunday focused on building direct line south of Forest Roads 1709 and 1706. Additionally, crews continued to prep the American Ridge Trail near Highway 410. Firefighters will once again be patrolling in and around the communities of Cliffdell, Goose Prairie, and Bumping Lake to provide structure protection on Monday. Hauling of excess materials and mop up will resume along the Highway 410 corridor south of Cliffdell. Crews will continue patrolling the southern area of the fire. Areas of the fire within the wilderness will also be monitored into the new week."


There's a lot of people and resources on the fire but the number is shrinking. On Monday 671 resources were on the fire. The number Sunday is 525 which includes;
Crews (8); Engines (28); Dozers (4); Air Resources (3); Other Heavy Equipment (24)
The helicopters dumping water on the fire are based at the Yakima Airport and fly to and from the airport during the day for refueling.


Evacuation levels have not changed since Monday.

LEVEL 2: Bumping River Road corridor from north to south; Highway 410 corridor from Salmon Cove to Pinecliff; LEVEL 1: Highway 410 corridor from Pinecliff to the junction of U.S. Route 12, and from U.S. 12 at Hwy 410 west to Tieton Reservoir Rd.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
