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.
