US 97 was closed in both directions between Goldendale and Toppenish Wednesday afternoon because of a wildfire.
   
The Shinando Canyon Fire is burning on both sides of the road at the top of Satus Pass within the Yakima Indian Reservation.

The fire was said to be about more than 300 acres, with no containment.

One structure was destroyed but there are no homes in the area.

There is no word on what caused the fire.
