A wildfire burning in Central Washington near Cle Elum is still barring several hundred people from their homes, but firefighters are hoping to gain better control of the blaze.

The Taylor Bridge Fire east of Cle Elum is 25 percent contained. The fire has burned an estimated 22,000 acres or roughly 35 square miles.

Fire spokesman Bruce Livingston says crews are working to assess the damage and determine how quickly residents will be allowed back into their homes.
