The Way Fire is 92 percent contained, according to fire officials.

On Saturday, fire crews focused on strengthening their containment lines and dousing the remaining hot spots.

The fire broke out Monday afternoon in Wofford Heights, on the north side of Highway 155.

Since then, the fire has charred more than 4,000 acres, costing the county $6.4 million.

Fire officials say eight homes were destroyed and 10 outbuildings were damaged.

The cause remains under investigation.
