    MASON COUNTY, Wash. - A level three evacuation that went into effect Thursday night as a wildfire burned near Highway 106  at McReavy Road outside of Union in Mason County was lifted Friday morning.

    Multiple fire crews were called to fight the Union Bank Fire, which burned an estimated 5 to 7 acres.

    Those in the immediate vicinity of the fire were told to leave immediately Thursday evening as the fire moved uphill from the highway near homes.

    People living on East 2nd Street, East 3rd, 4th, East Main Street and East Fir Street were told to leave.

    Other people living in the vicinity of the fire were under a level 2 notice, which means they should prepare to leave.

    With overnight rain, the Mason County Sheriff's Office said on Friday morning the fire was 100 percent contained and all evacuations were lifted.
