The fire has gone to state mobilization.  That means that assets from around the state can be brought in to fight the fire.

-----

Friday, August 4 - Update-1815 hrs.

The fire has split with one leg moving south towards Hwy. 172 and is currently at about Rd. 18 NE.  The other leg is moving east.  My information is that the fire burning on the north side of Hwy. 17 has been largely contained with firefighters keeping a close eye to make sure is does not jump the road.  There have been no more level III evacuations.  The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has moved its mobile command post north to help facilitate a unified incident command.  The command post allows for better communications in remote areas.  Douglas County has also dispatched a grader to help cut fire lines.

-----

Update:

The Red Cross is setting up shelter at Bridgeport High School.  It will take approximately three hours for them to be fully operational.

-----

Update:

Level III evacuation notices are being issued for homes east of Rd. "K" NE and south of Hwy. 17. The fire is still being pushed by strong wind.

in Douglas County

Today at 1:00 PM a Douglas County Deputy on routine patrol spotted a brush fire burning on both sides of Hwy. 17 Between Hays Rd. and Rd. “K” NE.  He reported the fire was being pushed by strong winds.  A level I evacuation notice has been issued for a three mile radius around the fire.  I have no additional details at this time.  More to follow.

WSDTlogo450SEATTLE – After hearing from ferry riders during local community meetings, reviewing hundreds of emails, and gathering input from key stakeholder groups, the Washington State Transportation Commission took final action today (Wednesday, July 26) on ferry fare increases that will be implemented over the next two years. The commission made changes to its original proposal in response to public input, which resulted in benefits to passengers and bicyclists. 

The commission is required to ensure ferry fares generate $381 million in operating revenue between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2019, as required in the recently passed two-year state transportation budget for Washington State Ferry operations. The commission’s fare proposal accomplished that but increases to passenger fares and bicycles with trailers generated the most concern from the public. In response to those concerns, the commission reduced the passenger fare increase in 2017 from 2.5 percent, to 2.1percent. It also applied a fare increase to bikes towing a kayak or canoe; this does not change the fare for bicyclists towing other types of trailers. 

The final ferry fare adjustments adopted by the commission will take effect as follows:

  • October 1, 2017
    • 2.9 percent fare increase for small and standard sized vehicles
    • 0.8 percent to 1.8 percent fare increase for oversized vehicles (22 feet and longer), depending on vehicle size
    • 2.1 percent fare increase for passengers
    • Passengers who bring bicycles towing kayaks or canoes will pay the motorcycle/ stowage fare. All other bicyclists towing items other than a kayak or canoe would continue to pay the same fare as today (bicycle surcharge plus the passenger fare). 
  • October 1, 2018
    • 2.5 percent fare increase for small and standard sized vehicles
    • No fare increase for oversized vehicles (22 feet and longer)
    • 2.1 percent fare increase for passengers
    • School Group passengers fare will increase from $1 per group for a one-way trip to $5 per group for a one-way trip

douglascountysheriff148On 07/23/17 at approximately 1:30 PM RiverCom dispatch received a report of a male firing a shotgun toward the reporting party’s home and passing cars in the 10 Blk of N Nevada Ave near East Wenatchee, WA.

Douglas County Deputies and East Wenatchee Police Officers responded and surrounded the residence.  While waiting for additional personnel and the Sheriff’s Office armored car to arrive,  the suspect came out the front door unarmed and surrendered. 

He was identified as 35 year old Salvador Garcia Martinez, who lived at the residence.  Investigation revealed that Martinez had fired at several parked and moving cars.  Four cars were damaged and a 19 year old East Wenatchee man received a minor injury when a shotgun pellet became imbedded in his cheek. 

The state crime scene team was invited to help process the scene.  Shotgun pellets and plastic shotgun shell wadding was found in neighbors yards and even in some yard sale items that had been displayed in a front yard. 

Martinez was booked for four counts of Assault 2nd Degree and three counts of Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree.
