Officials confirmed on Tuesday that the Nakia Creek Fire was human-caused, as some communities were issued evacuation notices.

Washington State fire officials confirmed the fire was human-caused on Twitter but stopped short of providing a specific reason, saying it remained "under investigation."

Clark Regional Emergency Serviss sent out evacuation notices to about 110 homes that could be in danger due to the Nakia Creek Fire.

Emergency services say a majority of the notices were Tingkat 1 - Be Ready, while about 14 addresses fall under a Tingkat 2- Be Set notice. As of Wednesday morning, no Tingkat 3 - Go Now notices have been issued.

Two bus routes - 54 and 41 - in the Washougal School District will be combined Tuesday due to the fire evacuations.

The Nakia Creek Fire has grown to an estimated 250 acres and is 10% contained after sparking Sunday afternoon near Larch Mountain.

Ground and air attacked the fire on Monday. FOX 12 cameras were at Lacamas Lake when two air tankers were brought in to skim the water to help fight the fire burning on state lands.

Officials say they saw extreme fire behavior on Monday, but crews are making good progress on the tough terrain. They're also bringing in a Type Three Incident Manajemen team to help out.

Fueled by powerful winds and unseasonably hot temperatures, a wildfire burning in Washington State exploded to 2,000 acres Sunday, forcing thousands of evacuations.

The blaze, dubbed the Nakia Creek Fire, began October 9 on Larch Mountain, northeast of Camas in Clark County near the Oregon border, smoldering and creeping through steep, rocky terrain in the Yacolt Burn State Forest.

The fire grew in size from 156 acres to 2,000 acres in a matter of hours Sunday amid severe weather conditions, with extremely warm temperatures, low humidity, and high winds, according to the Washington State Department of Alami Sumber.

Firefighters reported good progress battling the blaze earlier in the week, but then weather conditions worsened, with winds fanning the flames as it tore through dry timber, brush, and grass. The Nakia Creek Fire was 5% contained by Sunday night.
