The Mile Marker 28 Fire remains largely uncontained, burning on more than 4,600 acres along High 97 15 miles northeast of Goldendale. Almost three times that amount of land to the south of the main fire and mostly east of Highway 97 is under immediate evacuation. The evacuation area includes the towns of Bickleton and Cleveland. Another area is targeted for potential evacuation farther south.
