Due to recent movement of the Cougar Creek fire, the entire Lake Wenatchee area has been issued a Level 1 fire advisory  notification:

As of 2:30pm on Sunday, 8/19/18, a Level 1 (BE READY) Fire Advisory Notification will be in place for the following areas:

• Chumstick Road north of Merry Canyon (both sides of the road)

• Merry Canyon; Second Creek and Moon Canyon

• Community of Plain, including Ponderosa Estates, Plain River Rd and other subdivisions

• Chiwawa Loop Road to include Chiwawa River Pines

• All of the Fish Lake and Lake Wenatchee areas to Coles Corner

This is only a fire advisory for residents in the affected areas. The fire management team is working concurrently on both the Entiat drainage and the west flank of the fire. Due to prevailing winds changing from the SW to the N/NW, the fire is currently pushing to the SW. Cooperating agencies and the Incident Management Team have made the decision to initiate this Level 1 Fire Advisory for the above areas.
