Cougar Creek Wildfire

Announcements – 9:15am Aug 27

Chelan County Fire District 9, the Chelan County Sheriff’s office and the PNW3 Type 1 Incident management team
overseeing the Cougar Creek Fire have evaluated the current evacuation levels in place for the Chiwawa Loop Road community near Plain. The fire threat to residents has diminished significantly over the past two days due to the construction of a solid fire line along much of the western edge of the fire. Effective Monday (08/27/2018) at 9:00am, the Level 2 evacuation status for all of the Chiwawa Loop Road area (including Shugart Flats and Chiwawa River Pines communities) will be lowered to a Level 1 “fire advisory” status. Areas in Plain and Lake Wenatchee which have been at a Level 1 status, will no longer be under any evacuation notification. Residents are asked to continue to monitor fire information daily, should conditions change.
