MORTON, Wash. —

Two small wildfires in Western Washington are producing a large amount of smoke on Sunday.

Karen Ripley of the Department of Natural Resources says a fire is burning on about 40 acres of trees and logging debris in the Capitol State Forest southwest of Olympia and smoke is visible from the capitol city. An all-terrain-vehicle festival is happening in the forest this weekend and some roads and trails have been closed because of the fire.

Another small fire is burning on private timber land southeast of Centralia.

Ripley says firefighters are working on about 10 acres of burning patches within a 100-acre perimeter. That fire burning on steep terrain in eastern Lewis County near Riffe (RYF') Lake is also producing a large amount of smoke.

Ripley says there have been no evacuations or injuries from either fire.
