SOAP LAKE, Wash. (AP) -- A Grant County spokesman says a central Washington wildfire that started with a campfire burned across about 200 acres of sagebrush and grass before firefighters contained it.

County Emergency Management spokesman Kyle Foreman says fire crews from two fire districts were dispatched about 5:15 p.m. Monday to the fire in rangeland about three miles southeast of Soap Lake.

No homes or valuable property were damaged. Firefighters planned to remain at the scene throughout the night, mopping up hot spots.
