TWISP — Six smokejumpers supported by a helicopter dropping water are fighting a 2-acre fire burning in the Lake Chelan Sawtooth Wilderness, southwest of Twisp.

Ignited by a lightning storm that passed through the area Sunday, the fire is burning in steep terrain near the south fork of War Creek, about 15 miles southwest of Twisp.
