Fire crews continued to make significant progress battling the Web Fire Wednesday and as of 4:30 p.m. officials say the blaze is 70 percent contained and has burned 389 acres.

Firefighters continue to be challenged by high temperatures, steep terrain and difficult access. Crews will continue through the night and expect to further strengthen the existing control lines and increase the overall containment. Officials say full containment is still expected by 8 p.m. Friday.

No structures have been damaged or threatened since the Web Fire broke out Monday afternoon near the Web Hollow area, west of Highway 32.
