 CUSICK, Wash. – Work on the fire is progressing rapidly, with large sections of containment line nearing completion and other areas shifting to patrol and monitor status.
 CUSICK, Wash. – A dry cold front will be moving in from east British Columbia and is expected to reach the fire area today.  This weather pattern is often referred to as a "backdoor" cold front and is typically associated with passage movement from the north.  This change in weather patterns can generate winds that will shift to a northeast-southwest trajectory later in the day with potential gusts reaching 25-30 mph.="margin-top:6.0pt;margin-right:0in;margin-bottom:6.0pt;>
