We Got LUCKY, Please Keep Vehicles out of the Woods

While mountain biking near Fish Lake I came upon a small 2′ x 2′ smoldering fire in the middle of one of the old logging roads.  The embers were 3 or 4 inches deep and the fire was quite hot.  This was not a camp fire, but likely an accidental start from a vehicle.  There was fresh cut branches from firewood gathering adjacent to the fire.  Please keep all motorized vehicles on the pavement until the hot weather passes.   As Micahel from Lake Wenatchee Fire remarked,  We got Lucky,  this easily could have been 5 acres before it was spotted and been a much bigger problem.
