On 4-7-20 at 5:41 PM, Chelan Fire & Rescue crews were dispatched to a reported brush fire in the area of 752 Swanson Gulch Road.
Arriving crews found an approximately ¼ acre wind driven brush fire that had moved into several large debris piles.
13 personnel from Chelan Fire & Rescue, working with several area residents, were able to get the fire under control within an hour and remained on scene to mop up until 1950.
The property owner was not burning at the time of this incident and the cause is still under investigation.
Chelan Fire & Rescue would like to remind our community that we are already experiencing an unusually active fire season this year and to please use caution when burning.
