Chelan County Fire District 3, together with partners from Chelan County Fire District 6, Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue, the Washington DNR and US Forest Service, responded to an early season brush fire roughly 1/4 mile up Little Chumstick Creek Road.
Fire officials say it started as an out of control debris burn. It spread to about an acre before crews contained it. Firefighters remained on the scene into the evening to make sure it was out.
The Sheriff’s office issued precautionary level 2 evacuations for a few homes in the area but no private property was damaged.
