SEATTLE — Despite rising temperatures, fire crews battling Washington's largest wildfire have been able to keep hot spots from spreading beyond containment lines.

The 390-square-mile Carlton Complex fire in north-central Washington is now 66 percent contained.

Officials say the rising temperatures have produced isolated smoke around the area, but say that none of the activity on Sunday was a new start or outside the fire perimeter. Officials add crews continue to be busy responding to concerns from area residents, putting out hot spots when they are called.

However, officials caution that the fire is not out yet and increased activity will still be noticeable.
