It could be a smoky day in the Leavenworth area Tuesday.
The Chelan County Public Works Department hopes to burn a big pile of brush on county property at Icicle Road and East Leavenworth Road
The site is a brush drop-off site for rural residents and businesses in the Apple Maggot Quarantine Area.
By state law, brush in a quarantine zone is not allowed to leave the area.
Tomorrow’s burn is dependent on proper weather conditions and a final go-ahead from the state Department of Ecology.
The county had hoped to burn the brush last fall but weather and air conditions were not right.
