SOAP LAKE, Wash. – Officials said over 160 personnel are working Sunday to put out the Whitehall fire burning near Soap Lake. 

The Whitehall fire sparked Saturday afternoon in Douglas County between Highway 2 and State Route 17. Washington State Trooper Jeff Sevigney said the fire is about 3,500 acres. 

As of Sunday, fire crews said multiple homes are still threatened, so fire lines are maintained to protect anything of value. Sevigney mentioned no structures have been lost and no injuries reported. So far, crews have the flames about 95% contained.
