Fire crews have contained a wildfire in central Washington's Kittitas County.

Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Debbie Robinson said there is still a lot of heat and heavy snags in the fire that's burning just less than a square mile of brush and timber about 5 miles east of Cle Elum.

Authorities hope to have the fire controlled by Sunday evening. Strong winds are expected in the region for the next few days.

Six homes in the area were evacuated and some roads were closed on Saturday because of the fire. Robinson said Highway 10 was opened on Sunday and that the homeowners may be allowed back to their residences soon.

Investigators haven't determined what caused the fire.
