ChelanFireRescueLogo200On July 30, 2021 at 8:48 am, Chelan Fire and Rescue was dispatched to a brush fire at 16445 S. Lakeshore Rd.

The fire was reported to be 20 feet from a structure and on the uphill side of Lakeshore Rd.

First arriving units reported a ¼ acre brush fire that was moving upslope with zero wind. A 2nd alarm was called to provide more manpower.

Forest service and DNR resources also responded.

Fortunately, with no wind the crews were able to catch it within feet of being out of reach of the water stream.

The cause of the fire appears to be an accidental spark from an excavator track.

As this fire shows, in these conditions all it takes is a spark. Please be aware anytime you are near dry grass.

On 7/15/21 at 8:39 am, crews from Chelan Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a reported 20x20 brush fire on Hidden Lane in Chelan.

Units arrived to find a ¼ acre, slow-moving fire in brush and grass.  Crews on scene were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire within 3 minutes of arrival. 

Our ability to staff and respond rapidly to these types of incidents enables us to mitigate the fire problem before it can become a bigger issue.

Cause of this fire was believed to have been a spark from concrete chipping that was being done by the property owner.

Chelan Fire & Rescue would like to remind our community that our local fuels are extremely dry and we ask that property owners take all precautions to prevent the accidental start of wildfires.

On 6-28-2021 at 2:43 pm Chelan Fire and Rescue and Chelan County Fire District #5 were dispatched for a report of a brush fire near 18820 S. Lakeshore Rd.

The fire was reported as torching trees and threatening a structure.  Due to the fire's distance from the stations and the extreme temperature working conditions, a 2nd alarm was called. 

The DNR and Forest Service also assisted with sending multiple resources including a helicopter.

Luckily the winds stayed calm and the fire was at a wide spot along Lakeshore Road which helped keep it from spotting and racing up the hill before fire units arrived.

Units were able to quickly stop the fire progress and the 2nd alarm resources were cancelled.  The Fire was held to just less than an acre. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation but there was a report of 7-10 popping noises in the area approximately 30 minutes before the fire started. 

Chelan Fire and Rescue encourages everyone to stay on the lake or stay indoors in air conditioning during this historic heat wave and to not do anything that could cause a spark.
