Fire update Aug 31 & Community meeting announcement

LWFR high res logoFire Managers on the Chelan complex of fires will host another community meeting at the Plain Community Church at 7PM on Wednesday evening, Sept 2nd to provide information on the current status of the fire and dispel some misinformation circulating in the area as to the mission of the earthmoving/construction equipment currently being seen in the Lake Wenatchee area.  That equipment is currently being used to improve existing forest roads and access in the event more  aggressive defenses have to be put in place.
