CAMAS, Wash. (KPTV) - Minimal fire growth was reported overnight for the Nakia Creek Fire.

As of Wednesday morning, the wildfire was estimated to be 1,869 acres and 12% contained. Officials said the fire is up just 73 acres from Tuesday morning.

Firefighters will continue to complete the fire line and bolster existing containment lines on Wednesday. With less fog and smoke in the area, fire managers are hopeful that aircraft will be able to fly the fire, dropping water on areas that are difficult for ground crews to get to.
