LEAVENWORTH — The Eagle Fire is pretty much done.
Fire managers said Thursday that rain and aggressive firefighting contributed to 100 percent containment of the blaze by Wednesday evening, 11 days after it began Aug. 19.
At its peak, the 1,457-acre wildfire forced immediate evacuation orders (Level 3) on about 31 homes in Eagle Creek and Bjork Canyon and drew more than 850 firefighters from districts and agencies across the state and British Columbia.
The blaze was about 5 miles northeast of Leavenworth.
Fire officials said Thursday that about 150 firefighters will remain on the scene for the next several days to continue mop-up operations and monitor firelines.
