The USFS has taken over management of the fire as of last night.

This morning we are at 75% containment. The crews are still putting out hot spots and finding smokes.

They are working at opening up the area by tomorrow morning.

The biggest concerns are snags, hanging dead branches, and \’widow makers\’(hanging dead trees).

The area is under a red flag warning with the high winds.

Please use Lake Wenatchee Hwy at this time as the fire area of North Shore Drive is closed to fire personnel only
