Effective immediately: In conjunction with the USFS, Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue is restricting ALL outdoor burning within the District boundaries. This will include recreational fires and campfires as well as charcoal briquettes. We expect Chelan County to enact a complete ban as well next week but given current conditions with no relief in sight we are taking this action to save lives and property. Propane fire rings and barbeques using propane are permitted during this period. When the risks from current conditions permit we will lift these restrictions. Thank you for your vigilance and compliance.
Mick Lamar, Fire Chief, Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue
